Miroslav Djukic admitted that Valencia’s 2-1 loss to Real Sociedad on Saturday was ‘a step back’.
Los Che went down at Mestalla thanks to goals from Antoine Griezmann and Ruben Pardo. And the Coach has lamented some missed chances for his men.
“Losing at home is always a step back,” he told a Press conference. “But I cannot blame my team.
“During the first 30 minutes we had opportunities but we lacked effectiveness in front of goal.
“They are a deadly team on the counter-attack – they have a lot of speed. And we paid for that.
“We created some danger for them towards the end of the match, but it was too late.
“We didn’t give them many opportunities, but it is true that for the first goal we did not defend well.”
