Gary Neville wants Valencia to vary their style based on opponent

first_img He said: “I was very happy on Saturday night. Obviously Barcelona are a fantastic opponent, one of the best teams in Europe. I think the players set themselves a standard, hard work, organaisation, spirit, endurance. Suarez scored and they didn’t drop their heads, they showed fight. I do want the Mestalla to be a horrible place for opposition to play.” Neville says he doesn’t want his side either to be one that counter-attacks or one that likes having the ball all the time, but a blend, depending on who they are facing and the scenario. Neville was delighted with the atmosphere the fans created against Barcelona and wants more in midweek. CET “There’s a fascination nowadays with style of play. Do you want to play possession or counter attack – can we play both?” he asked.  Sport ENcenter_img 08/12/2015 at 23:06 New Valencia manager Gary Neville says his side gave Barcelona a tough time at the weekend and looked forward to the Lyon clash on Wednesday. His side must beat the French outfit to stay in the Champions League, while hoping Gent don’t topple Group H leaders Zenit St Petersburg. “Against Barcelona we had a lot of counter attacks, maybe tomorrow night it’s different. I believe in possession, of course I do, but I also believe in counter attacks. To say you are this style or that, very dangerous.”last_img
