Valencia CF head coach Gary Neville spoke in the Media Centre at the Ciudad Deportiva on Saturday afternoon, to look ahead to the La Liga Matchday 25 game against Granada CF. Despite a run of consecutive victories for the first time since he took charge of VCF, the Englishman called for calm and insisted on the need to maintain the performance level from the meeting with Rapid Vienna.
"Now is the time to keep calm. It's only two matches. My mind was very clear after the Rapid Vienna game; people were asking me if this is a turning point, and I don't see football like that. I know that every week in football is different. I have kept calm throughout, and I have enjoyed every moment at the club so far -despite the challenges we've faced- but I think now is the time to work even harder. We've got some difficult games coming up: Tomorrow against Granada, on Thursday against Rapid Vienna, then three La Liga games the following week. There's not much time for recuperating, and now is the time to focus on our confidence, which was very useful for us against Rapid. I hope that we can continue playing like we did against Rapid, because it set a high standard that we have to keep up."
