Valencia coach Jose Bordalas says he’s happy to still be in the Copa del Rey after victory over Atletico Baleares.
Valencia won 1-0 on Sunday thanks to Marco Andre’s first minute goal.
Bordalas said, “Yes, the most important thing is that we got through. These are always difficult games, and this one was against opponents who had just eliminated two Primera División teams, and who logically had an atmosphere of support for their team at home. We took the lead very early. What I will take away from the game is the result and the fact that we are through to the quarter finals.
“Now it’s time for the players to recover, because on Wednesday we have a very important game.”
On buying this month, he added: “I don’t know. Let’s see if they come in as soon as possible. Today the team was very depleted, with many absentees. We were using kids from the second team and controlling our substitutions so as not to break the rules.”
