Nuno: Valencia were united

Nuno Santo described Valencia as ‘a united team’ after they recorded their first Champions League group stage win of the season, beating Lyon.

Sofiane Feghouli scored the game’s only goal and Nuno, speaking to the Press after the match, commended his team.

“Our pillars worked: the commitment, the cooperation. We played well in the first half and suffered in the second,” he said, AS reports.

“The priority was to win and we didn’t give up. We defended in an organised manner, counteracting the central area. Perhaps we were vulnerable on the flanks, which were clear.

“We played against a good team and they’re not out of it. I think everyone saw that our team plays, produces and arrives. Our fans saw a united team.

“We’ve shown that it’s necessary in this competition to be together. Football hadn’t been fair to us but we’re here to fight.

“Jaume Domemech? He keeps growing and improving in quality. The position is covered. It’s important to have continuity there.”
