Mourinho: "Peter Lim is awesome, football needs people like him"

Both Valencia CF coach Mourinho and player Juan Mata have spoken to the media in the press conference ahead of the Champions League match that will be played tomorrow in Mestalla.

What is your opinion of the owner of Valencia CF?

Peter has been my friend for years, even before his arrival in Valencia. He is a man with high standards and if I were a millionaire I would invest in football, that is what Peter Lim does.He enjoys football a lot, he invests in his passion and he can fall in love with football by being the owner of one of the biggest clubs in Spain. Football needs people like him.

You are back in Mestalla. How are you feeling?

It's going to be a very special match for obvious reasons, with Chelsea FC I came back and it was a day I'll never forget. The game does not have much point meaning, but the sensations that I will experience will be for a long time because of the emotions that I experienced during my four seasons in the club with the fans of Mestalla. It is a pleasure to come back home.

What do you think about Valencia CF?

I think the team is in a situation that is not deserved, the results are not being fair, because in the matches the team competes well.

What do you think about Carlos Soler?

He is a player with a lot of quality, he has a lot of talent. The Valencian fans have him in the consideration he deserves, he would be in youths when I was here, he has self-confidence and a lot of talent.
