Nuno: No contract rush

Nuno Santo is in no hurry to discuss a new contract with Valencia as he believes the club knows where he stands on the matter.

It’s been reported that the Coach will be rewarded for Los Che’s good start to the season with fresh terms on the contract signed over the summer, but he told a Press conference prior to playing Athletic Bilbao that there’s no rush.

“The club and everyone else knows my opinion. Things take time, it’s normal,” he said, AS reports.

“I don’t want to think about it. There’ll be a renewal in time. My job is to prepare the team.

“The team has been built around a positive environment. There is respect and admiration here. The union is fundamental.

“I’m glad when I see that the players get along.”

Nuno was asked if Valencia are going to play a front three of Rodrigo Moreno, Paco Alcacer and Alvaro Negredo, and he revealed that they are not.

“We won’t play with all three. We play with two. The game dictates how we change and we have the options to do it,” he replied.

“Rodrigo had a great game against Villarreal. He’s a player who works for the team and the team is getting into a routine.

“I don’t care who scores. It’s not important – what is important is what the team does.

“I don’t care if one player gets the goals. The important thing is scoring and not conceding many.

“Strikers are obsessed with wanting to score, the goalkeeper is obsessed with stopping them…all the defenders want to play and defend well. It’s an honour to be with this team.”
