Valencia coach Koeman insists no way back for dumped trio

Valencia coach Ronald Koeman has gone against president Juan Soler and insists his banished trio will not play again for the club while he is in charge.

Yesterday, Soler declared that the dumping of Valencia favourites Miguel Angel Angulo, Santiago Canizares and David Albelda was all a "misunderstanding" and that they were again part of Koeman's first team.

However, the Dutchman rapped: "They are not going to come back. It is my decision.

"This is the last I will talk on this issue. We've been speaking about it for two weeks and now it's time to talk about other things."

Koeman, meanwhile, has performed an about-face and now is insisting Nikola Zigic is part of his plans, after earlier indications suggested he was ready to also bomb out the big centre-forward.
