‘Neville language barrier no problem’

Valencia caretaker Salvador Voro insists the language barrier facing new boss Gary Neville is not a problem ahead of Saturday’s match against Barcelona.

Neville will officially begin his reign of Los Che on Wednesday against Lyon in the Champions League, leaving the club legend in charge for the La Liga visit of the Catalans this weekend.

“We’re measuring ourselves up against great opponents, one of the best teams in the world who play the best football,” he said at a Press conference.

“It’s a match made even more difficult with the injuries we have. It’s a sad reality.

“Despite this, however, we’ll contest the match and show our faces.

“With the support of our fans, whom I personally call on, we’ll have enough in our locker to win the game. We’ll try to exploit them.

“[Barca] have a great team with great players. We’ll look at ways of neutralising them, but we’ll primarily focus on ourselves.

“I see [Rodrigo De Paul] in a good way and he can give us a lot, although the number of casualties we have means we’re not stacked with options.

“He has great enthusiasm, and it’s a great game for any footballer to play in.

“I hope [Gary Neville] conveys as Valencia Coach all he conveyed as a player.

“He’s one of England’s assistants, but that’s not enough to form a definitive judgement.

“He’ll greatly improve [on the job] and he has [his brother] Phil, who speaks broken Spanish.

“The language of football is international. It’s a challenge, but Gary doesn’t see it as a problem for the team.”
