Parejo: “Football has been unfair on us, we had chances to avoid defeat”

The VCF captain talked about the huge effort that his players put in at Camp Nou

At the end of the game, Valencia CF’s players were exhausted after putting plenty of effort into their LaLiga clash at Camp Nou. Dani Parejo, the club captain, believed that his side earned the right to a share of the spoils after creating a lot of chances in an “unfair” result.

“The team have done a great job, they have competed and given it all out on the pitch. Football has been unfair on us. We had enough chances to at least not lose. It is a day where we have to be happy with how the team looked despite the defeat.”

Despite FC Barcelona being in excellent form at Camp Nou, winning 13 of their 15 home fixtures in LaLiga so far this campaign, Valencia CF still went toe to toe with the league leaders. “We came to a difficult stadium against an unbeaten opponent in the league, we pressured them well and we didn’t back down, we competed during parts of the game in terms of possession. We had five or six clear chances at goal, but when you don’t score you end up paying for it.”
