Valencia's Villa: International week ill-timed

David Villa has revealed new Valencia coach Ronald Koeman has interviewed players individually since his appointment last week.

Villa struck twice in Saturday's victory over Real Murcia and said: "Every coach has his own methods and it's important we all carry out his instructions, but winning makes everything easier.

"He's spoken to us individually and also as groups (attack, midfield, etc.) and as a squad. He has insisted we all defend when we don't have the ball and also that we dominate possession in games.

"It's tough for him now with international week. It would've been good if we could all have worked together after Saturday's win, but this is something that we must live with."
