Villarreal coach Emery happy with young trio for Copa win at Victoria CF

Villarreal coach Unai Emery was happy to give several youngsters their debut in this week's Copa del Rey victory against Victoria CF.

Villarreal won 8-0 at Vitoria, with Dani Tasende, Adrián de la Fuente and Nikita Iosifov all making their debuts.

Emery said, Players from the B team were involved. It's important for them to feel close to the first team so they can help us when we need them to.

"The club works a lot with the academy, and we trust the academy, and we try and give opportunities to the youngsters here.

“The team put in a serious performance, and were focused, like I wanted them to be. I'm pleased with the performance of my players because they respected the tournament and the opposition."
