Djukic refuses to resign as Valencia boss

The coach is under pressure following an awful start to 2013-14, but he believes that one win can help turn the team's fortunes around

Valencia coach Miroslav Djukic insists he has no intention of resigning, despite losing four consecutive games in all competitions.

The 47-year-old came under further pressure after watching his side fall to a 3-0 home defeat to Swansea in the Europa League on Thursday. 

This result came off the back of three successive losses in La Liga and means Valencia have now conceded three goals in their last four matches.

However, the Serbian coach remains confident he is the right man for the job, and has backed his side to come out fighting when they host Sevilla on Sunday. 

"I look at this with strength," he told reporters. "It's the same as always. I will not resign.

"We [the coaching staff] all agreed that we lack confidence and that we can start resolving this with a win."

The Mestalla outfit enjoyed a solid start to the season with a 1-0 success over Malaga on the opening day and Djukic will be hoping his team can rediscover winning ways in the 21:00CET kick-off on Sunday.
