Cillessen opens up on making Camp Nou return as Valencia player
- Jasper joined Los Che from Barca this season.
- This Saturday, Valencia face the Catalans at the Camp Nou.
- Jasper expects the game to be difficult for the away side.
Jasper Cillessen joined Valencia from Barcelona last summer in a deal reportedly worth €35m after spending three seasons with the Catalans. This Saturday, the Dutchman will once again be present at the Camp Nou. This time, however, he won't be wearing Blaugrana.
In a recent interview with Diario Sport, the goalkeeper opened up on his expectations ahead of the match:
"Barcelona have a lot of quality and it will be difficult for us. It would be better for us if their forward trio isn't complete, but there are many other players at Barcelona who are very good and it's never easy to play at the Camp Nou.
"I Iike difficult games. We need results to be able to aspire to everything and we hope to play a good game at the Camp Nou. I want to win."
The 30-year-old had played 32 games for Barcelona before leaving for Los Che. At Barcelona, Jasper has mostly served as Marc-Andre ter Stegen's back-up. At Valencia, however, Cillessen is the starting goalkeeper.
