Gary Neville has reiterated his desire for Valencia to go into every game trying to win as he prepares for his first fixture as Coach.
Valencia have to beat Lyon to stay in the Champions League and their fate will also be in part determined by the game between Zenit St Petersburg and Gent, but Neville, appointed last week, wants the focus on what his team can do.
“All I know is we want to win every game. That’s what we do. We have to focus on our game. If the result doesn’t benefit us, that’s life,” he insisted at a Press conference, AS reports.
“I don’t know if it’s dangerous but I don’t feel anxious. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I don’t feel anxious with England either.
“I’m not here to lower expectations. Where’s the sense in not having ambition? It’s a great way to start, the Champions League and we have to win. First it was Barcelona and now the Champions League.”
Neville has recalled Alvaro Negredo into the squad after the striker was banished by his predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo, and confirmed the former Manchester City man was in contention.
“I’ve talked to him. He’s not played for two or three months but for me he is part of the team,” the trainer said regarding Negredo.
“We’ll try to get him fit soon because he’s been out for two or three months. I can see [playing with Negredo and Paco Alcacer]. We’ll have to see. I haven’t decided about Wednesday.”
