Valencia coach Quique Sanchez Flores has taken total responsibility for last night's scrappy 2-1 defeat of Real Valladolid.

Flores said: "I respect the fans' opinion very much at the Mestalla and I agree with them, because we played a poor game in which we won when we were inferior.

"I ask the fans to excuse us because there was no spectacle. They left disappointed, but our obligation is now to change the fans' thinking. I take responsibility in a 100 percent way."
