Miroslav Djukic is set to be named new coach of Valencia.
Djukic, who left Real Valladolid last week, will be formally presented on Wednesday, but told Marca he was looking forward to returning to the club where he played from 1997 to 2003.
"There is a good squad here who can achieve great things," he said.
"To me, it's a dream to come to Valencia. This is home to me, and I have always regarded it as so."
