Simone Zaza has heaped praise on Valencia Coach Marcelino for ‘not being an army general’ and improving players ‘through dialogue’.
The Italian international has already netted more goals this campaign (7) than across the entirety of last season (6) when he spent six months at West Ham United on loan before moving to the Mestalla.
“Marcelino is a very strong Coach with a big character,” Zaza is quoted as saying by AP Sports.
”He has been helping me a lot but it’s not only me but all the players. What I like the most about him is that he likes to have a dialogue, to explain things.
"He's not an army general who won't speak to anyone, he likes to explain things and help you. He'll explain something and later you'll realise he was right.
”The league is very long, there are a lot of difficult matches. When we go through a difficult moment we will have to show our character. We can keep playing at this level the entire season.”
