Valencia coach Bordalas 'very satisfied' after victory at Celta Vigo

Valencia coach Jose Bordalas was delighted with their 2-1 win at Celta Vigo.

Hugo Duro and fit-again Maxi Gomez struck for the visitors after Iago Aspas had struck early for Celta.

Bordalas said, "We are very satisfied, I am very happy with the behaviour of the team. We came here with players missing, with players like Piccini who has not played for a long time, with Hugo Guillamón who returned to central defence...

"Today the team were able to suffer and put in a good showing, and this is the image we want to give off. We started in an adverse way with a goal that we practically gave away: Koba wanted to play a nutmeg on the wing, Alderete got overconfident and we were pickpocketed. The team knew how to react. We suffered a little more than necessary, but I prefer to focus on the behaviour of the players and I want to congratulate them, as this is the way forward."

Bordalas also said: "More than a turning point, it could be an important boost for the team to have confidence; you have to go step by step. We took an important victory, we are seeing the difficulty for all the teams when it comes to winning games, and we have to keep growing. We have to keep our feet on the ground and work with great humility."
