Francis Coquelin: Valencia at Manchester United to win

Francis Coquelin has warned Manchester United that Valencia are going to Old Trafford ‘with the intention of winning’ on Tuesday.

Coquelin is no stranger to United, having faced them as an Arsenal player through the years, and the midfielder has bounced back from a long-term Achilles problem, appearing in Valencia’s last three games.

“We’re going to Manchester with a bit more confidence after winning at Anoeta and with the intention of winning,” he told VCF Media.

“We’re going there with the objective of winning the game, knowing we’ll be playing in the Champions League where the big players play better, and Manchester United have many top players. It’ll be difficult.

“Physically I feel very good, the minutes I’m getting are allowing me to gain match-sharpness.

“The Champions League is a very attractive competition, we’re playing against great teams and facing Manchester United, a game that many players would like to play in.

“Manchester United have always had a good team, with players of great quality. I think they’ve been more inconsistent this season, but it’s very tough to play at their stadium.”
