thumbnail Hello,

The Basque-born coach says he is happy with a share of the points at home after his team overcame a 1-0 deficit to lock up the score in their group E encounter

Valencia coach Unai Emery has described his side’s Champions League 1-1 draw with Chelsea as a "fair result" and praised the attitude and cohesion of his players.

Chelsea opened their account at the Mestalla in the 56th minute through a Frank Lampard strike but a penalty from Roberto Soldado in the closing stages of the game saw the home side walk away with a share of the points.

Speaking to the press after the game, Emery commented: “I'm very happy with how the game went and with the attitude of my players, especially as we were up against a great team.

“A draw was a fair result, even more so when you consider the fine performance of our goalkeeper Diego Alves balancing out the good chances we created.

“We are happy with a point. However, we will have to improve in front of goal to pick up all three in future.”

Valencia face German club Bayer Leverkusen in their next Champions League clash on October 19.
