After confirming interest from rival clubs in Valverde, Javier was asked about reports linking his coach with Barcelona.
"(Barca sports director Txiki) Begiristain knows what's good, and Valverde is it. I want them to leave us alone. There are many good trainers, they should leave Valverde where he is," said Javier.
"Ernesto will continue at Espanyol, he has a contract until 2009, is very happy and we are with him."
