Valencia coach Javi Gracia 'happy' with victory over Real Valladolid

Valencia coach Javi Gracia was delighted with victory over Real Valladolid.

It was a first win in the LaLiga since November for Los Che.

Gracia said, "What we have achieved makes us happy to break that streak of games without winning. We had a really good first half, with dominance and control. The second half was more equal and we suffered.

"It was a victory suffered, but we could have finished it much earlier."

Asked whether he feels supported by the board, Gracia also said: "What I have received from the club is that it has shown me support, which is appreciated, especially in times of difficulty and weakness.

"Personally, I'm happy, but not for me, but for the work of the players and for being able to give joy to the fans and make the atmosphere more positive."
