Renan is delighted with the way he has settled at Valencia.

The young Brazilian goalkeeper joined Valencia in the summer from Internacional de Porto Alegre and has impressed so far this season.

"I can't believe it," admits Renan, "a few months ago I was playing against David Villa and Fernando Morientes on my PlayStation - and now they are my real teammates!

"The Brazilian goalkeepers are now in fashion in Europe. I'm now here and hope to have a long career with great success."
