Dani Parejo wants to prove his value at Valencia.

Parejo, who joined Valencia from Getafe in the summer of 2011, feels sympathy for his team-mate, but insists that he will give his all to convince head coach Unai Emery of his abilities.

"Up until now I have not had many opportunities," the 22-year-old told the Uefa website.

"While it's awful what happened to Ever, it's obvious I might have more chances now and I'm going to try and take them. In fact, I'll give everything I've got."
