Valero thanks Viola fans

Borja Valero has thanked the Fiorentina fans for their support despite crashing out of the Europa League on Thursday.

The Viola lost 1-0 to Juventus yesterday thanks to an Andrea Pirlo goal, but the Spanish midfielder has praised the Artemio Franchi faithful even in defeat.

“Today is a tough day after the defeat last night,” he told reporters. “But I am convinced that this will make us stronger.

“I won’t let this opportunity pass to thank the fans because that’s what they deserve.

“It’s an absolute pleasure to play for this shirt, this city and for these fans. We won’t ever give up.

“Forza Viola sempre.”
