Sergio Canales wants Valencia to beat Real Madrid on Sunday, so as to regain some confidence going into Christmas.
The young playmaker will go up against his old club tomorrow when Los Che host the capital club.
And after Miroslav Djukic was sacked earlier this week, the attacker has claimed that his men are in need of a lift.
“We are in the situation we are in,” he told a Press conference. “But we are playing against Madrid at home.
“We really want to win the game for the three points – that would really give us confidence.
“We know they are a great team, but every game is different. Our mentality is to win – that’s it.
“I’m not the one who’s going to talk about the Coach. We need to focus and then we’ll see what happens.
“The important thing is to get out of this situation. If we can get a result maybe that will be a turning point.”
