Win helps Valencia recover prestige, admits coach

VALENCIA, Spain, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Valencia coach Quique Sanchez Flores said Wednesday's 2-1 victory over AS Roma was the perfect way to help his team recover their prestige in Europe after missing out on the Champions League last season.

'After a year out of European football this sort of result will help us reclaim the position we once held,' he told a news conference.'

The win put Valencia, who reached consecutive finals in 2000 and 2001, in the driving seat in Group D with a maximum six points from two games, while Roma, who trounced Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0 in their opening match, follow on three.

'I'm very satisfied with our performance and the win means that we've now got a better chance of qualifying,' said the Valencia boss. 'We didn't expect to be in such a good position so early on.

'We are ambitious and our objective is to win the group, but this is just the start and we must make sure we win all our home games.'

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti tipped Valencia to win the group but said that defeat at the Mestalla would not prevent his side from progressing to the knockout stage.

'Valencia are now favourites to win the group but for us losing this one isn't such a big setback as there is still a long way to go,' he said.

'We are on the right track and we've only played two games so far and we'll have to see how the rest of the results go.

'Valencia played a very good game. In the first half we played some good attacking football but we faded in the second and I'm not quite sure why.'
