Nuno Santo admits the time has come for Valencia to turn “words into results” ahead of Sunday’s trip to Sevilla in La Liga on Sunday.
Los Che only managed a 1-1 draw with Las Palmas last weekend to remain outside the European places, while their Champions League campaign hangs in the balance after a 2-0 defeat to Zenit St Petersburg, but the Coach is convinced his side will respond at Sanchez Pizjuan.
“We’re working hard so our quality will follow,” he said at a Press conference.
“We’re not afraid. We’ve transformed it into a challenge. I see the team with the urgency of changing [our dynamic] and responding [from poor results].
“It’s always good to play at home, but now we’re playing away and we have to compete, respond and give our best.
“What I’m doing is working as hard as I can to transform words into actions. Results, not words, will change things.
“We’re aware that we need consistency. We had a great game in Vigo but against Las Palmas we lacked force.
“The blow [in the Champions League] was not winning our last two games.
“Last season was a struggle until the final match. We competed with Sevilla until the final minute.
“They’re great opponents, with great players and a great Coach, but we’ll respond.”
