Jeremy Mathieu has assured that Valencia have been trying to reverse their situation all season and that key to doing so will be in their ‘togetherness’.
Los Che have endured an indifferent first third of the season and find themselves in mid-table. Ahead of travelling out to Nastic for the first leg of their Copa del Rey Round of 32 clash this Sunday, Mathieu has mused on their situation.
“In every game the team is involved, but the first two months have been difficult,” the French international has considered today.
“The togetherness of the team is most important because when we are united, we are perfect.
“Last week’s win against Osasuna? It is easier to play against a team with a player less, but we were better against Osasuna.
“We saw the true Valencia then. We pushed forward and we had the ball.
“We talk a lot between us, to get out of this situation. When we win games it is good for the confidence and for us.
“The aim for the team remains Champions League qualification and whilst that is difficult, we will try.”
Mathieu commented also on this weekend’s Cup tie.
“We want to progress and I do not know if the Coach will make many changes to the team, but we also need the confidence from a win. It will be a very difficult game against a team that likes to play a lot.”
