Wass: “Helping the team comes before everything”

Versatility on the pitch, a distinctive trait of Valencias’ fourth signing

Mid-field, wide midfield, or few meters further back in defense… multi-tasking is one of Daniel Wass’ main characteristics, who signed for Valencia CF this Tuesday until 30th June 2022. In his first press conference, the Danish player stated that  “helping the team is my number one priority”.

Happy to have made himself part of the valencianista group, Wass will fulfill one of his dreams - to play the UEFA Champions League - and his personal goals are strikingly obvious: “My aim is to play as many matches as possible”.

An ambitious footballer, after playing the UEFA Europa League, where he managed to reach the semifinals, he wanted to take his career up a level: “playing in the Champions is a personal dream and I signed for that exact reason. Valencia CF gives me the opportunity to do so”. Following a phone-call with Marcelino, he has already been subject to orders from the Asturian coach during the team’s first training session this Tuesday afternoon.

Before bringing the press conference to a close, Valencia’s most recent signing joked about never having been sanctioned since coming to La Liga: “I’m a really chill guy on the pitch, the refs love me (laughs)”

Anil Murthy: “There is a complete harmony when it comes to putting together a decent Champions team”

Alongside Daniel Wass in the Media Centre at la Ciutat Esportiva was the club’s president, Anil Murthy, who had just left a meeting with the club’s directors and technical staff. “Wass is a great signing and he fits our plan perfectly. I had lunch with Mateu Alemany, Kim H. Koh, Pablo Longoria, and the technical staff who support Marcelino to speak about the team’s market value, and I’m extremely satisfied. There is a complete agreement in what we are doing to prepare the team and create a decent Champions team. We’re adding Wass, a multi-skilled player, who has experience in La Liga and who will help us this coming season to achieve great things”.
