Djukic closes Valencia ranks

Miroslav Djukic has directed his players in training this week to avoid airing grievances in the Pressroom from now on.

Tuesday saw Jeremy Mathieu raise eyebrows at a conference with comments aimed at the Serbian tactician.

Speaking of his discontent at what turned out to be seemingly not in first team plans in training in the lead-up to next weekend’s trip to Espanyol, the Frenchman soon after apologised.

On from this at training on Wednesday, it is reported that Djukic called together the squad to urge them to close ranks and to direct them against airing dressing room grievances in public from now on.

Meanwhile, in the latest workout, it appears that Djukic is looking to reincorporate Mathieu into the first XI, at full-back instead of Juan Bernat.
