Gayà: "There are six finals left"
The Valencia defender, who made his comeback from injury at the Camp Nou, is excited by the prospect of qualifying for next season's Champions League.
José Luis Gayà, the Valencia full-back, believes that his side have six finals left this season as they battle to secure qualification for next year’s Champions League.
“There are six finals left and what we have to do is win the first, which is against Granada on Monday. From there we will continue looking at the fixtures, but what’s most important is the Granada match because a lot is at stake,” he said.
The young defender lamented Saturday’s defeat at Barcelona, which occurred despite the fact Valencia played well, although he said that “what we have to continue doing is working as we have done until now and focus on the objective of the Champions League which is very nice and very exciting”.
“We have to keep looking ahead, prepare well for the match against Granada and produce a good week in training,” said the Spain Under-21 international.
Gayà, who finds himself in negotiations with Valencia over a new contract amid interest from clubs such as Real Madrid, made his comeback from injury at the Camp Nou.
He added: “I had not played for three weeks and I was very comfortable, the defeat was a shame but I am happy to continue playing.”
