After victory over Real Betis, Valencia coach Quique Sanchez Flores insisted he was not unsettled by the pressure he was under from fans in recent weeks.

Consecutive wins against Schalke and Betis have silenced the doubters and Flores said: "I don't have to prove anything. I accept opinions, good and bad.

"We work to convince people of our quality. My happiness is tied to the fans and the board - because we all want the same thing."
