The players that helped us return to the Champions League… Rubén Vezo

His performance and versatility have lead him to his best season yet since joining Valencia CF

Rubén Vezo is enjoying the best form of his career, but he still wants to keep improving. At 24 years of age, he has become a versatile option for Marcelino, who can trust in him both at centre back and right back. He has played more minutes than ever this season, becoming more important than ever since his arrival at the club in January 2014.

For the Portuguese defender, wearing the club’s colours is “an honour” and after a fantastic season he is already looking forward to returning to the Champions League. In the 26 games that he has featured in (19 in LaLiga), he has racked up a total of 2,142 minutes.

At tough moments, Vezo remembers one of his own favourite sayings: “Only the strong survive.” Vezo never surrenders. Marcelino was pleasantly surprised when he saw him in training and chose to put his faith in him, and throughout the season he has become gradually more important and a go-to choice when the squad rotates.
