Marcelino: “The support of the fans is necessary to win lots of matches in Mestalla”

The Asturian coach attended the Agrupación de Peñas, where he was warmly welcomed by the peñistas

With a big ovation, Marcelino was received by the more than 200 supporters who gathered at the headquarters of the Agrupació de Penyes Valencianistes, in a meeting that showed the affection that the fans have with the Asturian coach, a situation that is reciprocal, as they could tell when the coach made sure to go one by one through all the tables greeting them all.

"For a coach it is always rewarding to be back a year later here, my hope is that next season you will invite me and be here again," said Marcelino after hearing the words of the president of the Agrupació, Fede Sagreras, before highlighting the importance of Valencia fans to win games, as was proven the previous year and so far this year. "That support from the fans and the union with the team makes us stronger, being an essential key to achieve the objectives at the end of the season. I ask you that in the moments of difficulty you show support for the team, because I assure you that the footballers want to do good, and your support is essential to win many matches in Mestalla".

Next, Marcelino made an assessment on several issues:

Match against FC Barcelona

It is a match of 90 minutes where the success is decisive before an extraordinary team and players, with one of them above the rest. We play with all of you and that is an added value. Surely you are going to help us until the 90th minute, last season we lost the victory in minute 84, personally I have never won, but there is always a first time.

Start of the season

We knew that we would have a season full of difficulties, especially at the beginning of having a complicated schedule, injuries of important players arose, players arrived after the World Cup or after having an off-season preseason, they did not arrive in the desired way, but we know of their potential and progressively achieve a performance that will help us to make a Valencia CF better and better.
