Valencia striker Chori Dominguez is convinced they can win titles this season.

Chori says they can handle the departure of star pair David Villa (Barcelona) and David Silva (Manchester City).

"Pressure is always high at a club like Valencia. Players leave, this happens at most clubs. Now we are more compact, we go into battle not having a clear leader, but instead as a single unit. Now, we do not look for a leader on the field, we look to the whole and this is very good for us," he told AS.

"When a team is a unit it goes further than when based on individuals. That's my way of thinking. In addition, you cannot live looking back, because we're here looking for the best for the club."

"I would honestly prefer to see the team win a title. We will try to be unbeatable and we grow in confidence I prefer that to the personal matters.

"It's a shame because I am anxious to do this [impress fans] but at the same time it doesn't really matter what happens in friendly matches because right now we can lose to anyone, what matters is that we win when la Liga starts."
