Former Valencia assistant coach Jose Maria Bakero has distanced himself from ex-head coach Ronald Koeman.

Bakero insists he wasn't involved in the decision to isolate senior trio David Albelda, Miguel Angel Angulo and Santiago Canizares earlier this season.

He told Radio Marca: "Everything I have spoken with Ronald [Koeman] was regarding sporting decisions. But then he had his own meetings with the club and took that decision."
