Batshuayi reveals who convinced him to join Valencia
- Chelsea loanee has stated that the conversation with Valencia coach Marcelino made him their player
"It's true that I had other options, but I talked to the coach and he convinced me to come to Valencia," Batshuayi told reporters, as quoted by the Sports Mole.
"Mestalla is magnificent. Valencia have fantastic fans and their players are very good, with a lot of quality. For me, it'll be great to share a team with Rodrigo [Moreno].
"Valencia and I are very ambitious and I want to win trophies with this club. Before talking about how many goals I'll score, I want to give a good impression. I want to grow and so do the team. I can adapt to Marcelino's style very well, and we can do something great all together.
"What convinced me to join Valencia was how competitive they were. They fight the big clubs and play in the Champions League. However, what convinced me was the conversation I had with Marcelino. I'm human and that was key."
