More than 7,000 Valencia fans enjoyed a fantastic open training session at Mestalla

Valencia CF fans continue to show their brilliant support this season, with more than 7,000 spectators going along to watch their favourite stars train at Mestalla. Bit by bit, the open parts of the stands filled up, with the squad getting a great standing ovation as they took to the field on Wednesday evening.

The players first sharpened up with some passing drills, as young and old watched on. The fans want the players to know that they appreciate their efforts this season, giving them plenty of praise and encouragement at any opportunity.

The training session consisted of link-up play at a high intensity, with the players put through their paces on small, constricted pitches. Those in attendance were treated to some lovely finishes and some equally impressive stops from Neto, Jaume and Cristian. The only players absent from the session were Andreas Pereira and Francis Coquelin due to injury, while Toni Lato did his own individual session to aid his recovery.

At the end of the session, the fans were treated to a little surprise, with the players coming over to sign plenty of balls and scarves for the crowd. Marcelino fired some balls into the stands, as everyone enjoyed the positive energy in Mestalla.

Nobody wanted to miss the chance to be at Mestalla, with club president Anil Murthy and his executive adviser Kim Huat Koh present in the stands, as well as fellow adviser and club ambassador Juan Cruz Sol. The club president was happy to be in some photographs and sign some autographs, while Mateu Alemany and Pablo Longoria were involved pitch side.
