Navarro wants his side to put the Champions League loss to Schalke behind them...

Valencia captain David Navarro insists they must put their disappointing Champions League loss to Schalke behind them and focus on the upcoming match against Zaragoza.

Los Che crashed out of Europe's most prestigious club competition after succumbing to a 3-1 defeat on Wednesday night at the Veltins-Arena.

The Spaniards took the lead in Germany but could not hang on and eventually fell to a 4-2 aggregate loss, and the veteran defender wants his side to bounce back from the setback with a good performance in La Liga on Saturday evening.

"It's no good regretting it now," the 30-year-old said to the club’s official website. "We have to look at whatever we might need to improve, and focus on the fixture against Zaragoza.

"We have an important match ahead, in which we have to do well in order to hold on to third place. It hurts, but it isn't a failure.

"The team gave their all, and a failure would be to not have even tried. Nobody can fault our effort. We definitely turned up for the tie," he concluded.

Valencia are currently third in the Liga table, four points ahead of Villarreal.
