Gabriel Paulista is enjoying his best run of form as a professional

He's the only player to have featured in all of the last 13 games

Gabriel Paulista is enjoying a purple patch in his footballing career performing at a high level. The Brazilian centre-back is enjoying himself on the pitch, so much so that he thinks that his decision to come to Valencia CF was the right one. He has been able to maintain his best level of performance with continuity.

Marcelino has been instrumental in Gabriel’s rich vein of form, he trained under Marcelino during his stint at Villarreal CF. As Gabriel himself admits "the effort and professionalism are non–negotiable for Marcelino, either you stay fit and give your all or you don’t play. You’ve got to fight at 100%".

Gabrial Paulista will miss out on the midweek home clash against Getafe CF through suspension after having featured in 13 fixtures from the last 11 in LaLiga, on top of the double-legged tie against FC Barcelona in the Copa del Rey. "How he buys into the team and his desire to keep playing is massive. He is the type of player that we need to keep making Valencia CF even better" said Marcelino in his news conference after the game at home against RCD Espanyol.
