The tab Genk a technician and a tip to get airborne

The Netherlands Mario Been will be the new coach of Racing Genk, rival Valencia in Group E Champions League and has had a very weak start in the Belgian league.

Been, 47, has signed a contract for one season, as the group said in a statement, adding that the new coach will offer a press conference this afternoon,
Mario Been, who coached until last season at NEC Nijmegen, Netherlands, Belgium Franky Vercauteren replace, who left the Genk in early August to train Al-Jazira in the United Arab Emirates.

Genk, last Belgian League champion, is currently in tenth position in the table (out of 16 teams) with six points in five games.

When bad start in sports joined the severe ligament damage in his left knee suffered last Saturday that the German central defender Torben Joneleit during the league match against Mechelen, which will let you off the pitch for seven months.

To strengthen the team, the Genk agreed yesterday the signing of young striker of Congolese origin Benteke Christian (20 years), from Standard Liege.

Genk receive at Valencia on September 13 in the group stage of the Champions League and will play in the Spanish city on 23 November.

The VCF unsponsored League starts 27 years later

Valencia started the new edition of the League with the front of his shirt and white without looking or logo or the name of any commercial company who serves as its main sponsor after holding this kind of advertising on their kit over the last 27 seasons.

The club Valencia is waiting to find a sponsor to meet their economic demands, so far, the only advertising that will look at their equipment will be the MSC cruise line on the sleeve of the shirt and the natural products company Herbalife in his pants.

In this period of almost three decades, a savings bank, an institutional tourism brand, a cooperative of cleaning products, two brands of cars, a theme park, a computer company, a company suspected of organizing events and a house gambling have appeared in the Valencia shirt.

The poor economic situation of Valencia in the early eighties led in 1984 to appear on the team shirt the image of the Caja de Ahorros de Valencia in exchange for debt that is held with the entity Valencia.

The agreement lasted until 1990, first with the Caja de Ahorros de Valencia, until 1989, then as a Box of Valencia in the season 89-90 and until 1992 the current name of the entity, Bancaja.

During the campaign 92-93 and 93-94, was Mediterrania, tourist brand of Valencia, which the club wore the shirts of his first team return for 140 million pesetas.

In the following year, the club received 90 million pesetas of cooperative CIP drugstore products, with the Valencia played the 'end of the water' of the King's Cup against Deportivo La Coruna.

The car manufacturer Ford sponsored the team for a total of about 3 million euros from 1995 to 1998, when it was replaced by the Terra Mitica theme park, which was present in the achievement of the Copa del Rey Supercopa of Spain and the dispute two finals of the Champions League by FC.

Nor did badly at Metrored, which appeared in the shirt of Valencia won the league in the 01-02 campaign to promote his computer company in exchange for 1.8 million euros, but did not continue because of their delinquencies.

Therefore, the Mestalla club was about to start the 02-03 season without a sponsor, when wore a shirt without advertising front for the first few games of that season but a payout of 2 million euros by Terra Mitica prevented this.

The Japanese car Toyota appeared in 2003 to develop collaborations with the club longer, as was present on the shirt from the achievement of the League and the UEFA Cup 2004 to win the Copa del Rey 2008.

By contrast, the sponsor more controversial than it was exhibited all Valencia Valencia Experience, a virtually unknown company was announced as an organizer of events in Valencia, but soon fell into arrears of the quantities agreed.

The high cost of having to delete your logo shirts condemned Valencia to hold it in gear for the rest of the season, an injury that could only be mitigated by the inclusion in midseason from the bookmaker Unibet, who offered share the jersey sponsor insolvent.

Unibet became the main sponsor of the club for the next two campaigns and became the company has contributed more money to the club per season.

Still, the Valencian came to play some competitive matches without looking European betting this brand because the laws of the countries he visited, such as Norway or France, forbade this type of business showcase in competitions.

This is not the only case of a team that this season will detach from the primary audience for his shirt, as both Villarreal and Atletico Madrid also start this season with a shirt that stands out for the classic colors of the club, not being covered by any sponsor.

Montoro will be two months out with his broken fibula

Joel Johnson, who was low last week, continues his recovery from an overload that will prevent almost certainly be for the weekend.

The positive note for coach Vicente Mir is the recovery of Armiche Ortega, suffering from a sprain, and on Wednesday will join training with Valencia Mestalla.

Jordi Alba: 'Real are very strong, but we want to be there'

Alba was speaking during the presentation of the shipping line MSC as a sponsor of the Mestalla club.

If Fenerbahce low Gönül will be easier

Until August 31 Valencia will try to close the incorporation of a right lateral field area in which the coaching staff thinks that you can still improve a lot, beyond having on the payroll Saltor Bruno and Michael, this is one of discards work was performed for the first day of league. The Athletic Department is negotiating with a couple of options that will come if they come into sharp business parameters, and two more options to entice Valencia today are Andreas Beck (Hoffenheim) and Turkish Gökhan Gönül (Fenerbahce).

The situation of Turkish winger has turned a corner in the last hours, as Fenerbahce has called down voluntarily to the second division, also prevented him from playing the Champions, and that can facilitate their arrival at Valencia, as it wants to continue competing in Gönül the elite. The Turkish press reported that the VCF had already made ​​an offer of five million euros.

There comes a distinct central to which is Unai

Throughout the day yesterday were exchanging documentation leaders Valencia and Naples in order to formalize during the day today the signing of Victor Ruiz for the next five seasons. It only remains to close this point, but Unai already been reported that has it. And the coach has begun planning the next meeting with a central defender who offers a completely different profile to the three specific currently has: Adil Rami, Àngel Dealbert and Ricardo Costa. Is left-handed and with a good technical level, a virtue that allows us to offer a good start the ball from behind, as if raised in the current school of FC Barcelona. Unai therefore considered as the basic sports management have on staff a central defender of those features, especially for parties Mestalla where the opponent holds a lot, at which time the incorporation of the plant is more important.

Victor, at 22, still has much room for improvement, during which time you have to get the hierarchy that is gained over the years. Why not played for Naples? Walter Mazzarri used to use a defense of three plants and in the games he played the Catalan failed to maximize their strengths, being too close to the left, even to merge into a false left-back. The club is Victor technical reports for years and apart from his technical skills is also considered good in the air, but must improve defensive aggressiveness. Rami is physically very strong and conclusive in the air, Dealbert notable for its level of concentration and Ricardo Costa is very experienced, and Ruiz will bring output ball offers none of the three.

In recent days have received multiple offers, but Braulio was clear that only a central would sign with a different profile to those who have, and the last two names that have been put on the table were former espanyola and the Ogbonna, center of Torino. Victor is better technically, Italian is physically stronger. And in the end also had to see the economic issue. As demanded by Ogbonna twelve million euro transfer, a figure unattainable today to Valencia, because the salary cap that was set was eight million, approximate amount of what is going to pay for Victor. A season ago and his move was attempted, but ended up asking the VCF Espanyol more money than months later, she asked to Naples, but its technical reports were very favorable and when it has had the opportunity to have signed. With the arrival of Victor Ruiz, who hope to formalize signing today, Valencia have them available at a center other than the ones there.

Bernat League debuts in 18 years

18 years, five months and 26 days. That is the exact age at which the Valencia Mestalla John Bernat debuted yesterday in the First Division player of the Valencia. Coach Unai Emery rewarded in this way in the match against Racing Santander's excellent season which has made the youth to first team action with which the player has earned a place in the professional staff.
John Bernat took the left side of midfield and was on the lawn during the first 45 minutes of the meeting for the second day of National League championship.

After seven preseason games, in which he started four of them-the young Valencian ordered the chance to debut in La Liga. The poor play did not accompany Bernat group in the awaited debut. 1.72 The left-hander tried to associate with the man who accompanied her band, Jordi Alba, and Argentine Pablo Piatti. It was precisely with Piatti who started the play with the first goal Valencia. Highly mobile, the two first played on the left of the ball shot that killed Paul rejects pitch and goal from a striker who smells blood, Roberto Soldado.

From the quarter hour mark, with the first mismatch on the defensive over both Acosta, Valencia and most of its players was diluted in the first half. The team clearly missed him in midfield and, therefore, depth in his game over the sides. Bernat could just combine a couple of actions with Jordi and Piatti, but inconsequential to the goal Santander. Valencian, but lacked the boldness that he showed in preseason, was correct in treating the ball and put a couple of balls into the area.

At the conclusion of the game the coach Unai Emery praised the player's debut 18 years and replacing the 46 minutes of play allowing your site to Sergio Canales. "This is a hard road and he is drawing a positive way. He will jump over the obstacles. Sucamino in Valencia is to stay and play, "said Basque.

Piatti, which also premiered in official mourning with the VCF, occupied the left-winger Jonas went to the turf in place. From there was the man who fell channels left, but as before the change, he looked over the middle and move between lines.

Soldier, sixth hat trick in first

Roberto Soldado, Valencia striker, who scored three of the four goals in his team's victory against Racing Santander 4-3 in the league opener, has managed in this way his sixth hat-trick in first and in addition a total of fifteen goals in last ten league games.

The striker, born in Valencia and 26, in the First Division debut with Real Madrid in the 2005-2006 season and has since played for Osasuna and Getafe, where the set came from Valencia last season.

Soldier, author of 63 goals in his six seasons in the top, made his first hat-trick wearing the shirt of Osasuna, in a win against Levante at home by 1-4 in the 2006-2007 season.

Later in the ranks of Getafe, accumulated three 'triplet' more against Sporting (5-1) in 2008-2009 and against Xerez (5-1) and Racing (1-4) in 2009-2010, curiously the same opponents this Saturday and the first game of the season.

With Valencia and endorsed him four goals Getafe (2-4) last season, April 3, in which also meant the beginning of his spectacular scoring streak in which he scored 15 goals in the last ten games.

The end of last season was outstanding for soldiers, who, with his goals, led Valencia to third place in the table, because after scoring four goals against Getafe, the streak continued with two goals at Villarreal and Real Sociedad and one to Real Madrid, Almeria, Espanyol and Deportivo.

At this time, just failed against Osasuna and the Levant, although this high percentage of effectiveness has not allowed him to be summoned by coach Vicente del Bosque for any of the games he has played lately the national team.

Soldier comes to the rescue of the defense with a hat trick

Roberto Soldado worked the miracle at the shrine of Mestalla. The Emery KO would fall by three goals after receiving defensive unlikely a rival run by Hector Cuper. But the minute it became clear that one night the '9 'of Valencia. Soldier took only two minutes late to return the air to the coliseum Valencia living the game with a lump in my throat. Comeback and madness at the Mestalla, he could not believe what I was seeing.

That would be the night was clear and the Soldier on the first play of the game. So prescient the 'Gudari' Valencia CF opened the scoring seconds after they take out of school. After a beautiful combination of Bernat and Piatti, the ball fell at the feet of Pablo Hernandez shot and tone, which premiered gloves for the start of the season, he missed the ball. Soldier awaiting the ruling was noted in the first ball he touched.

The bulbs were going back to point back to Soldier, but this time to see how they threw her hands to her head. In an unfortunate move, Valencia striker stuck his head in a corner of the Racing to deflect the ball into his own net.

Racing Cuper up unpredictably bit knowing the difficulty of playing out from behind those of Emery. Valencia did not flow and fast against the Arana, Acosta Munitis and drew the defense colors-white, more black than white today.

The Cantabrians had been around the game and responded by Valencia CF soldier's weapon as a battering ram. '9 'Capitalized on the chances and was a magnet for the center and Pablo Piatti. In a first crossed over in the second header near post. I was at all.

The Cuper brought chaos to the rear of Valencia with very little. A ball clear of the rear and a dark green or Acosta Munitis race was enough to cause all kinds of mismatches.

Emery moved tab in the second half and got into the field to Tino Costa Canal and to address the lack of effectiveness of the team in attack and defense to consolidate a stable, respectively.

Racing was believed he could win the match and became a comfortable team scored again (1-3) to the resumption of the second half by Adrian after several blunders of the defense Valencia. Rami replied quickly with a goal after a corner where the giant Frenchman won the jump at all.

Toño began to shine in two headers from Rami Soldier and again. Jonas input by Piatti gave some offensive force to Valencia, who sent a ball to stick. The best thing was for the two last gasps of the match. Soldier and Soldier. Two goals were worth three points.

The first took great care to define Jonah angry. When a draw seemed a lesser evil and madness came Mestalla. Jordi Alba focused at the far post and there he put the tip of the boot Soldier. Three goals, three points and Valencia breathe.

- Technical:

Emery: "We must improve defensive situations'

The Valencia coach Unai Emery, acknowledged today, winning by 4-3 to Racing Santander, that it "is a victory notice," and added that one of the aspects that need improvement are "defensive situations."

"We have three important points that come with warning. It's a game where we won suffering, and the conclusions of the victory, which are above the rest, we leave things to improve as a defensive situations," he said.

The game against Racing was "very alive" Emery, "especially for the result," before which stressed "the important light on the hobby of Mestalla, the motor to turn the scoreboard."

After reaching the break with 1-2 loss, the coach left the field to Valencia Juan Bernat and Ricardo Costa and ushered Sergio Canales and Tino Costa, changes which he admitted "not point to anyone."

"It is because we lose at home, are people outside the field and can bring different things. The adverse outcome needed correction," he added.

"In the overall, the team has done a lot of chances, but they did very little danger. Is a matter of teaching: Racing, with many young players, has put you in trouble," Emery explained, for whom he missing "have patience to succeed in the times."

On the game's Argentine midfielder Banega Éver, the technician explained that Valencia "has the will to add, has some important qualities and we all want that Banega, who needs the qualities of other players around."

Sergio Canales's entry in the field was "positive" according to Emery, because it "has a capacity of arrival and possessions makes the team would come good."

With respect to the figure of Juan Bernat squad, which was changed for a relaxing break, Emery said, "This is a hard road and are drawing a positive way. He himself will jump the obstacles. His way in Valencia is to be and play. "

Valencia coach also commented on the possible arrival of a defensive player, Victor Ruiz, who said that the conditions demanded by the club, who are "the player to add and contribution" to the team.

Emery and Braulio side option value

Each passing day seems more complicated but not Valencia stops working to strengthen the team before 31 August closing date of the transfer market-eye is Wednesday of next week. The coordinator of the technical secretariat, Braulio Vazquez is working overtime and on Tuesday met up twice with the first team coach, Unai Emery.

Meeting little has transpired since the club keep absolute secrecy knowing what is at stake. Yes it has learned that on the table is now the possibility of hiring a right wing, moreover, has been told this newspaper, but surprise, the arrival of a player in this position may be closer than it looks . It is possible that in the coming days even. Which or what are the names chosen is one of the great secrets and Valencia prefers not letting go-cases Gameiro and Mangala have stung a lot in that sense, although the players who are on the table are those who have followed during the season and still in the market, see the German Andreas Beck, the Celta Vigo player, Hugo Mallo or Turkish Fenerbahce Gökhan Gönül, player who has seen them play live several times this season.

They fight for a central
Finally arrives right side does not mean that there will come a central, if it is true that depending on the arrival of a panel can be more investment on the side, but this is only true in theory, because the times are not so easy to handle in the market, especially because teams are struggling with these players Valencia, and at this point the close of trading can be very dangerous to wait a few days whether an operation is set to throw. This newspaper and reported in yesterday of the different options that shuffles the technical secretariat, as Mbiwa or Mangano, the French league.

Gökhan Gönül placed at Valencia CF

Different internet portals spoke yesterday in Turkey's interest in Valencia gain the services of Turkish side Fenerbahçe right. Known is also a central defender, which is the priority, the Secretariat-white is looking for a right side and there are many names that are on the table. Gökhan Gönül is, 26-year-old has 24 caps for his country and has already sounded for several teams in the Spanish league.

According to various media published the Ottoman country, Valencia have made an offer of five million euros, although this has not been confirmed by SUPER, the truth is that it seems a very high amount of money for what I had originally planned to invest in Valencia right-back because from the club insist that the priority remains the central defense.

Offensive side
That said, the fact is that this is a good player, an offensive right side of that came from the Gençlerbirligi Fenerbahçe also the Turkish league, team that faced Valencia in the UEFA Cup final in the knockout in 2003/04, in which precisely the coaching team that Rafa Benitez then went on to win the title after winning 2-0 in the final Oympique Drogba from Marseille.

The center is Victor Ruiz

Victor Ruiz is called, is 22 and in the coming hours will be made official his move to Valencia until June 30, 2015, although his contract was valued include more optional. Unai Emery has already central to the other wanted specific, in a deal concocted during the week and ended at 2.30 pm last Thursday at a restaurant in Monaco, when the Naples gave the green light to the latest economic proposal made by President Manuel Llorente, closing the deal in amounts ranging between seven and eight million euros. Every time there was less to the market close, so Llorente came at the last moment to supply not escape. At press time the documents were exchanged between the two clubs as the idea is to formalize the signing in the next few hours, and representatives of defense there is also a verbal agreement only needed to capture. It was not an easy operation, but in the end, the Catalan player's desire to return to the league has been decisive, and that ultimately convince the Naples coach Walter Mazzarri.

In the meetings that have taken and Unai Braulio, Victor Ruiz name has always occupied a central position. Without going any further, last season and his move was attempted, but the asking Espanyol economic figure that Valencia was not willing to take, and the player ended up calling in Naples during the winter for six million more rights federation of Dátolo. Now the VCF paid a similar amount to that held in Naples in January. Victor is a central lefty with a great future ahead, but in the Calcio did not have the prominence that it did manage to play in the club Espanyol. Fixed to the lower echelons of the Red defender born in Esplugues de Llobregat also participated in the European Rojita sub'21 that won this summer in Denmark, but their minimal participation in Naples over relegating to a secondary role. Del Bosque has always been identified as one of the future for the Absolute, and this is one of the reasons that also have pushed the player to push their way out. The representative Filippo Fusco unveiled in a radius of Naples: "People who put Victor in Valencia linked your opinion wishes that the player has to go to the squad, perhaps he would be better to return to Spain and have a more important role according to their characteristics. " The VCF will have to fight with Rami, and Ricardo Costa Dealbert for the center position.

Braulio y Manuel Llorente and take several days negotiating with Naples, but has been fundamental change of opinion which have, as initially reluctant to pierce. Victor Ruiz's opinion was important, but the coach, who agreed to transfer the young central defender always bring him a replacement. SUPER has been told, Naples was in talks last night by a central Brazil and also provided the option of Emiliano Moretti. With the approval of the president Aurelio de Laurentiis, Valencia was cited in Monaco with the broker who executed the transaction and sporting director Riccardo Bigon. After the draw for the Champions League competition also played for Napoli, Manuel Llorente and Bigon gathered to bring in the economic positions was only a matter of reaching an entente 2.30 am and closed. The VCF has made a financial investment, but has also seen the player's desire to come, and Unai also considered a great footballer. All parties had the same goal, and also be highly values ​​the knowledge he has the player in the league. It is an experiment, but the technicians are clear that Victor will have to fight to win the position in the starting lineup, as no one guarantees it.

The intention of the two clubs is that in the next few hours are formalized in the arrival of Victor Ruiz, because after reaching an agreement with the player and Naples, everything has been at the expense of the Italian club close the incorporation of a defender more central parameters according to his coach has called on all stronger. The Catalan defender is aware of your cell phone to travel to Valencia, because the three parties assume the arrival of central Mestalla, but may not be the last signing.

Mata and wet debut

Juan Mata starred in a happy debut for Chelsea, author of the third goal for his team he sentenced her win against Norwich City (3-1) in 24 minutes of play left in the sample quality.

With 10 to Kill debuted back in 67 minutes, with a tie on the scoreboard, to enter France's Florent Malouda. An incident with Didier Drogba, who had to be removed immobilized on a stretcher, the match lasted eleven minutes.

It was in 101 minutes of the game when Kill took a pass from an opposing defense, to mark with a left cross and loose satin madness at Stamford Bridge. Before he left on good deeds left wing hit first with Fernando Torres well and is always associated with Frank Lampard.

Chelsea are undoubtedly one of the 'coconuts' in the continental showpiece and one of the strongest candidates to fight for the title of Champions.

It will not be easy opponents and has Michael Ballack as one of its best known players. Robin Dutt has replaced Jupp Heynckes on the bench after the departure of veteran coach at Bayern Munich. The star signing this summer was Andre Schürle, from the Mainz 05 in exchange for eight million euros. On the other hand is still injured goalkeeper Rene Adler, a knee surgery, and who still has time for his return.

The KRC Genk is the umpire. The Belgian champions suffered to be in the drawing of lots, as he had to wait for the penalties to eliminate 4-1 to Maccabi Haifa in the second leg of the last heat. With four rounds played occupies a modest ninth in a league that dominates the KV Mechelen. Like Bayer Leverkusen, the Crystal Arena debut against Valencia in the Champions League.


Valencia CF has faced four times at Chelsea in the Champions League with a record of two draws and two defeats.

A year later, in the 2007-08 edition, see their faces again, this time in the first group stage with a 1-2 defeat at the Mestalla, with goals from David Villa and-white by Joe Cole and Drogba for the Blues.

The first in July 2001 with black and white for 2-3 win with goals from Carew, Mista and Adrian Ilie, and the second a year later, in 2002, also winning both the visitor with Norway's John Carew.

Valencia: Llorente said market plans

Right now all eyes are focused on Valencia's possible arrival of a pair of defensive reinforcements that strengthen the back. It would be a central and a right side, two of the positions Unai Emery wants to shore up its staff for this course.

The newspaper says ela Super Sport hiring a whole is gaining winger in the last hours. On the other hand, Manuel Llorente, Valencia president of the organization, wanted to be more cautious in statements to Canal Nou has shown some of the market plans of your team.

"We are working, but we will not be waiting until the last day. If there is a center to improve what we have, we will not do anything, "said the president. So we will be vigilant in the coming days to know if a new reinforcement arrives or not.

Valencia has 5 options for the defense

Valencia remains still open fronts and one of them is to find a central and right side complete their behind. For this reason in the last hours ché box has gathered on the agenda of five names that could come to reinforce the line.

For the right lane Gönül Gokhan talking about a player of 26 years belonging to Fenerbahce and has been capped 24 times by Turkey. According to a report in various media in this country and collected by Super Sport, the Mestalla combined have offered € 5 million for him.

The same newspaper reveals that scouts the whole city of Valencia have spied two central Rennes: Kader Mangane (28 years) and Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik (22). The first is Senegalese and has recently been linked with Sevilla, while the second is Cameroonian and rang the agency for months to Valencia.

On the other hand La Gazzetta dello Sport claims on other information that the team coached by Unai Emery Naples have offered the € 8 million to be Victor Ruiz. And finally Sky Italia talks about a proposal for 7.5 M € Angelo Ogbonna, footballer Torino. Which of them landed finally in the Spanish squad?

Real Madrid are preparing a bid of € 10 million for Raul Albiol

Arrived in summer 2009 as part of the "Hispanization" promised by the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, the Spanish central Raul Albiol was one of the key pieces of Manuel Pellegrini in all Concha Espina, a total of 33 member meetings league in which showed an outstanding performance.

However, the arrival of Jose Mourinho with his compatriot Ricardo Carvalho in the arm last summer was a notable drop in the participation of the Spanish international. A good example of this situation are just 20 league games he played under the command of Portuguese (13 of them starts).

This course does not think much will change, because while Ezequiel Garay has left Benfica, the young French talent has landed Raphaël Varane merengue in the discipline, which seems to indicate that Valencian than 25 years continue to be the central room of the template after Pepe, Carvalho and even Sergio Ramos, who no doubt Mourinho placed in the center of the rear if the situation requires.

Aware of this situation, given their need to find a new fullback, Valencia have knocked Real Madrid to try signing of Raul Albiol, as highlighted by the sports daily Marca. To achieve this, the picture ché would pay € 10 million, just € 5 million of which came with its sale two years ago. Will your goal?

Who should be the fourth captain of the VCF?

There will be fourth captain in the Valencia CF. Juan Mata's departure has left a vacancy among the representatives of the workforce, and Unai Emery has acknowledged that elect a new captain, who will join the already known Albelda, Soldier and Ricardo Costa. Slowly, because the intention is that the chosen have "grounds" in the template, as he said himself Unai. Among the leading candidates are Paul Guaita, Tino Costa and Dealbert. In fact some already sounded at the first election

Canales, a surprise to Unai

Sergio Canales has not yet been released with the band from Valencia, but Emery is so pleased with the performance offered since Sub'20 landed from the World, who meditates minutes and even give you a place in the initial training. The technician has not taken the final decision, but he heard only good words. Now is very good physically and successfully passed the acid test last Friday when he prepared a training match, in which Sergio was located in the midfield and showed a great version. There may be players who need more time to adapt, but Sergio has come to stop and that the technician is valued. Emery spent the whole afternoon yesterday at the Ciudad Deportiva de Paterna preparing the official release of the VCF in the current course and although it has not yet decided what tactical system will employ either the 1-4-2-3-1 or 1 -4-4-2, the figure of Cantabria can be a star.

In the attack Soldier has a permanent position, and doubt is whether a second striker seapuesta (Aduriz or Jonas) or bet on a playmaker, a role which enter if Piatti Channel begins the game by the left. Emery always favors gradually introduce newcomers and in the case of Sergio has not played or a friendly, but his performance was very pleased to technicians, taking match fitness having played with the selection Sub'20 .

Its features also can come in handy for Valencia against an opponent who is likely going to lock back, showing a well-ordered defense without spaces, the hallmark of teams run by Hector Cuper. Racing is a mystery, but neither enters Emery plans a win, and that the figure of channels may be important when unbalanced due to his football as vertical and quality holds. These features are making doubt the coach, in his mind does not include fixed line up two forwards, and if you play with two prefer a more mobile.

Emery, 'Transfers? Until August 31 you can '

Unai Emery has appeared at the first press conference prior to a match official. The coach, of course, has been questioned about the party, but there are still some aspects of the absence of close season and one of them is the template, in which the coach will wait until the last minute some incorporation. "We like what is the idea, everything that we can be open to help. They are finding players, options, and if it is the meeting point of the club is willing to do. Until August 31 the doors are open to exit or enter, if we can improve we are willing to do so. What could be better, be done. "

In strictly sporting Hondarribia preparer said he was "burning to begin" after the postponement of last weekend's strike by players. Solved the problem, Emery will have to decide now who are the first to come into their plans, and that as he himself confirmed today, no injuries and all are available. The first problem in goal. The coach has refused to confirm if Guaita will start, and in fact said that "we play who play unfair to the other, because both are working well and both deserve to play."

Topic captaincy. Unai has confirmed that there will be fourth captain following the departure of Mata, but need a "posed for the election," so they will choose to Replace active Mata "no hurry". Regarding Racing, the first official rival, said that "it is true they have low, but they have to lead the team an experienced coach Hector Cuper,-which manages its resources well, and have much respect."

The selection will
Valencia CF coach praised the fact that no representative of Valencia in the last call for Vicente del Bosque. "They'll be back for sure. Sure, the VCF will provide players because he will win. In this template there are players who will continue taking steps to go to selection."

Mestalla, used to start the winning League

Valencia, who will start the League against Racing Santander at the Mestalla on Saturday due to suspension of the first day of the season because of the players' strike began this competition at home to win five of the last six seasons.

The only defeat of the Valencian team in their own stadium in the league starting in recent years was the 2007-2008 season when he was thrashed in regional derby for Villarreal 0-3 with goals by Tomasson, Cazorla and Rossi.

Until then, the premieres of Valencia at the Mestalla in recent years had resulted in wins, and he was able to string together three consecutive wins: Betis (2-1 and 1-0) twice and Villareal (2-1) in 2004-2005.

After the defeat to Villarreal, Valencia has become the team to string a run of two consecutive wins without conceding a goal and also, against Mallorca (3-0) in the 2008-2009 season and against Sevilla (2-0) in of 2009-2010.

Valencia try to keep the winning streak at the start of the season, just as his coach, Unai Emery, who intends to maintain its particular streak in league starts in the First Division as they won them all.

Basque coach adds to this his fifth season in first division, one in four in Almeria and Valencia, and now has added four wins, two at home and two at home.

Leading the team in Almeria and its debut in the top flight of Spanish football thrashed Deportivo Coruna 0-3 in Riazor by goals from Negredo, Soriano and Crusat in what would become the prelude to a historic season for the Andalusian club and ended in eleventh championship.

On the bench of Valencia also premiered on the right foot with a win, but this time at home against Mallorca who won by 3-0 with goals from Vicente, Mata and Villa, a match that became best start club Valencia in the last 55 years.

At the beginning of the 2009-2010 season Emery's Valencia Sevilla also won in Mestalla 2-0 with goals from Mata and Pablo Hernandez, while last year the Valencia set debuted with a win in the Rose Garden at the Malaga Aduriz 1-3 with goals from Joaquin and a double.

Lugano, related to VCF with his change of scenery

Diego Lugano is one of the names linked with Valencia CF this summer to bolster the defense, and late on the rumors have been revived through the network. And the captain of the Uruguayan team will leave the Turkish Fenerbahçe following their relegation to the Second for his alleged involvement in match-fixing plot. The Istanbul Stock Exchange announced today the start of negotiations for the progress of the defense, which could soon find destination. Yes, the salary of Lugano think it would be impractical to call at Mestalla.

"The hype has been capricious when paired with Chelsea Mata"

Valencia coach has been valued at their website of the Champions League draw has paired him with Chelsea, Bayer Leverkusen and Genk. Unai Emery has affected especially the "capricious" has been the hype to pair it with Juan Mata Chelsea just three days ago has left the Mestalla club.

"Like last year we have been very aware of the draw for the group stages of the Champions League after seeing what we have had no doubt what more we can stress is that the hype has been capricious by including Valencia and Chelsea Mata in the same group. "

Emery has made a detailed analysis of the rivals have in this phase. "This is an attractive group for the presence of Londoners, but also hard. And of course, for Valencia CF will also be special to see John at the Mestalla with a shirt that is not that of Valencia.

Bayern Leverkusen adds difficulty to this group because it comes from a very strong league as the German, and Genk, which is demanding the champion of the Belgian league, we have to respect at all times. Our objective is to fight to qualify, and if it can be as group better. "

Emery has taken the opportunity to discuss the progress of Mata and wish a great future in the Premier League. "I said to John, and here I take this opportunity to wish him well in his new endeavors. All that we shared a dressing room with him we learned from John so good footballer he is, but as a person. Insist wish all the luck the world, that is, except when they take on Valencia. "

Ricardo Costa is committed to his team and Chelsea
Valencia captain Ricardo Costa has said after the draw for the Champions League that has been paired with Chelsea, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Genk that "Chelsea and Valencia have to go round by history and potential."

The Portuguese said he is "a competitive group because there are three great teams that will contest the next round access." "We want to play games and have the opportunity to enjoy the games against large groups and that we love," he said.

The draw has paired with Chelsea to Valencia with Mata will Mestalla. "Chelsea have other players who are good friends and will play against them. I hope that Valencia will win the match and after the meeting we will be friends," he said.

Ricardo Costa said the "Leverkusen is a complicated equipment and complete." "At home they are very strong and has high and powerful players. We must be cautious because there are strong," he warned after his experience in the Bundesliga.

The center believes that rivals Valencia "Valencia are afraid of it already has a name and history and have respect for their players." "Chelsea is very respectful of the players of Valencia and therefore have signed Mata. We will fight forever for the three points inside and outside the home", she said.

Ricardo Costa is well aware of the Chelsea Vilas Boas. "It's a very smart and technically very good. I worked with him at Porto and I know how he thinks and how he likes to play football," he revealed.

The Red runs out of Valencian

Valencia's players at the moment, fall plans Vicente del Bosque. The national team announced the official call for the next two meetings that will play the Spanish national team and it did not include any Valencia.

With the departure of Juan Mata to the Premier has not only sold the last world champion remaining in the workforce but has finished in the red-white representation. Mata as a Chelsea player on the list for the friendly against Chile and the qualifying match for Euro against Liechtenstein that Spain will play from next week.

In the first summons after sales Silva and Villa in August 2010, Spain also had no player of Valencia
The situation is not new. The first citation came after sales Silva and Villa was the same. In August 2010, for the first time after 19 years, Spain did not have any Valencia player. What happened at that time was that Juan Mata was asked by the federation to lend a hand to the sub 21 in the qualifiers for the European category.

I remember the coach
Still, Vicente del Bosque recalled Valencia players during his appearance: "Jesus Navas, Soldier, Aduriz ... They are good players, but can not fit all and something we must do."

At the moment, Valencia must conform with the presence of Sergio Canales in the sub 21. A list of which also fell Dani Parejo.
Emery pupils who do not travel to Spain coach does not mean that free virus Basque FIFA. Hardly. Up to five players are common with your selections.

Ricardo Costa returns to the call for Portugal after months of absence, Banega first enter a list of the new Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella, Topal is a classic in the combined Turkish; Rami is a fixed Laurent Blanc; Maduro also been invited to play for Holland.

Emery: "Valencia wants to progress and always be in the Champions"

The Valencia coach Unai Emery, said before the start of the season in the party that will face Racing Santander in Mestalla-white faces that all the campaign with the idea of ​​"improvement, progress and always be in the Champions '".

The coach said the team wants "to have a winning mentality and will be captured every day." "We want to take a step and the fans have to feel satisfied and proud of his team," he said.

The first litmus test will be the Real Racing Club coaching the well-known by the Valencian Hector Cuper. Emery believes that "we must have respect Racing." "We have references preseason, but Cuper has broad experience and has managed the resources it has," he said.

Emery said the Cantabrian team has "major players and has been reinforced with young players from the quarry." "Peter also has Munitis that helps young people to adapt more quickly," he said.

Valencia coach recalled that the Racing "has been given always well Mestalla and has always found comfort against Valencia." "Last year we won 1-0 in great pain, but Mestalla is our sanctuary and where we have to feel strong. We want to win and play well," he said.

The coach recalled that Valencia is preparing since July 7. "The week of break mentally upset, wanted to start in Pamplona. Now the illusion has been recovered for the second game. It is positive for all parties to start the league," he acknowledged.

Precisely match against Osasuna has been postponed to January 22. "It's not the same thing to play with it 25 degrees to zero degrees, so it will be a different game," he lamented. "We now think, Racing calendar suffers a small change and the more normal, the better," assumed.

Valencia is still walking in the footsteps of a plant. "We are working, we are seeing players and options, and if given the point where the club is willing to do it," revealed. "Valencia have the possibility of movement until the last day if you can improve things," said the possibility of rushing the deadline until August 31.

The coach said the arrival of new players that "whatever is added is positive, but not only in the central position." "If a blackbird that enhances what is there, would be in favor of incorporating" he said.

About who owns the goal and Vicente Guaita Diego Alves, Emery threw balls out. "The play will be unfair to the other, because both deserve to be owners," admitted

Emery was also asked about the fact that Banega has inherited the number 10 of Mata. "I had nothing to do with the election of the dorsal and never had anything to do. If one takes the 115 is like if you carry the 2 and the weight is the same," he said.

The coach does not expect anything special Banega. "I expect a lot of all, the first step of loving and living. Everyone wants to stay and play and is the only way to grow and advance," he said. "We expect the best performance from Banega, but Tino Costa and Dani Parejo," wanted.

Valencia train with the absence of Miguel

Valencia's workforce has been trained on Thursday with the mind set in the draw for the Champions League and has done so with the absence of Miguel Brito right side due to an allergic reaction.

Miguel Brito did not train with their peers and in the gym due to a mild food allergic reaction, but is expected on Friday August 26 training adds to the Mestalla with the rest of the template.
