Fiorentina skipper Valero delighted with Verona win

Fiorentina midfielder Borja Valero was delighted with his double in victory over Hellas Verona.

Valero was named captain on Monday night.

"I didn't expect to be captain. The Coach told me just before we left for the stadium and I'm very proud to have worn the armband," he told Marca.

"I had been captain in the youth team at Real, but never at the professional level in any of my teams. This team doesn't need motivating, as we all know what we want, but on the field I tried to encourage everyone and fire up the younger players."
