COPA DEL REY | BARÇA 7 - 0 VALENCIA

"I'm hurt by the image of Valencia we gave, not by songs"

Cheryshev spoke to the press after the official club captains refused: "I understand people are angry, I'm hurting too, we can't play like this".

Update:

Denis Cheryshev spoke to Canal+ Liga after their 7-0 demolition at Camp Nou, after an inauspicious night to make a debut. "We love you Cheryshev, we do" chorused around the Camp Nou, as the Catalan crowd enjoyed themselves as much in the stands as their players did on the pitch. A tough night to take for Valencia saw all the club captains refuse to conduct the pitch-side interview and Cheryshev stepped up to talk to the press.

7-0: "We're hurting for the way the game went. Not just because of the goals, but for the awful account of ourselves we gave. We were never in this game. I didn't see the penalty, I'm not getting into that. We gave a very poor image of ourselves but we have to get back up quickly, Liga is up next".

Fans: "I understand people are angry, I'm hurting too, we know Valencia can't play like this. We need to be united, now more than ever. After a result like this, we have no other choice".

Plan: "We needed to close down space and not let 'em get behind us so easily. They got ahead and we just couldn't stop them".

Songs from the Barça fans about Cadiz: "I don't listen to any of that. I tried to do my job as best I could, concentrating on that, I just want to do my job, the rest doesn't affect me".

Bitter taste from Madrid: "I learned an important lesson. I'm only interested in helping get the team get back up again".
