Valencia coach Marcelino swipe at Batshuayi?

There's claims Valencia coach Marcelino took aim at Michy Batshuayi last night after victory over Young Boys.

The on-loan Chelsea striker didn't get on the pitch for the Champions League win as Santa Mina struck twice.

Marcelino's praise for Mina, reports Superdeporte, is being viewed as a dig at Batshuayi.

He said, "All the players we have are hungry, in the end they all want to win and fight, but you have to decide which players are more fit, for me there is no first choice, second or third, you have to earn it in training and we have given continuity to his work since he scored two goals in the Cup.

"Santi plays for the team and not for himself, and as long as he continues with this work we will try to be fair to him."
