Parejo: Valencia’s aim always to win

Dani Parejo has reflected on Valencia’s intentions in the Europa League this week and in the competition as a whole.

Los Che host St Gallen in the third round of group stage matches tomorrow evening and, despite losing in matchday one to Swansea, are still seen as one of the favourites to progress far in the tournament.

“It’s another competition. It is the Europa League,” began Parejo to reporters at today’s pre-game Press gathering.

“Valencia must go out and give it everything to try and win, whoever the opponent is and that is what we will do here.

“They are not well known at the European level but if they are then it is for a reason. We will have to play with intensity if we are to come away with something.

“We have seen the game they played against Swansea and they had more chances than the Welsh.

“Will I play? I do not know. The Coach is the one who decides who will play. I will try to help if I get the minutes. The goal is to win. Hopefully we can, play well too and all go home happy.

“Everyone likes to play will and to contribute. We will try to get three points, which will be very good for the table.

“Weekend defeat to Real Sociedad? The team was good on Saturday. They were closed off at the back but we never lost desire.

“Are Valencia favourites for the Europa League? It is early to talk about favourites, but Valencia are a European giant, as they have always shown.

“We want to bring a title to the club because we are a good team.”
