Hedwiges Maduro is delighted with his first weeks at Valencia.

The former Ajax midfielder has already established himself as an ever-present in Ronald Koeman's first team and declared: "I am well and I am happy to be a starter because there are very good players here competing for places. The atmosphere is very good in the dressing room and the important thing is that the team wins.

"It's very good to be at this club and in Valencia. It is very important for me to feel settled so I am able to display my best football."

Maduro added: "We can still qualify for the Champions League."
