Enzo Perez admits Valencia have hit rock bottom, following a home draw with Granada which keeps them on the fringes of the relegation zone.
Los Che have endured a miserable campaign so far, having won just three of their dozen matches in La Liga. Their latest disappointment came at the weekend when they failed to beat the winless La Nazaries, a result which saw their supporters turn on club owner Peter Lim by booing him and chanting for him to leave the club.
This leaves Cesare Prandelli’s side fifth bottom of the league standings, just four points above the relegation zone and already eleven off a UEFA Champions League spot. And speaking after the 1-1 draw at the Mestalla Stadium, captain Perez conceded that he and his team-mates had hit rock bottom and need to dramatically improve their performances.
“It becomes very difficult,” the 30-year-old told Marca. “We have hit rock bottom in every sense. In order to climb up in the standings, you need to win games. Playing the way we are doing, it’s going to be hard to take points. We give away childlike goals that you should never concede. If anyone has to pull the team out of this situation it is us, the players.”
