Tottenham loanne Bryan Gil starred in Valencia 4-1 defeat to Barcelona at Mestalla stadium on Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur fans have been given a further glimpse of the sort of potential Bryan Gil possesses as he produced another impressive performance for Valencia in their clash with Barcelona on Sunday despite being on the losing side.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang perfect hat trick hell Barcelona claimed a convincing 4-1 win at Valencia on Sunday, lifting his side to fourth place in LaLiga.
However in Valencia’s demolarising defeat, Gil proved to be a shining light for Valencia. He produced an outrageous cross to help hand the home side a lifeline at the start of the second-half.
It was the 21-year-old’s first assist for the club. And it was a moment of real quality from the Tottenham loanee.
Speaking to the press conference after Barcelona 4-1 victory over Valencia. He said
“It’s a tough day. In the first half we conceded three goals, and that’s difficult to overcome, but in the second half we went for it with everything, and we wanted to win the game. They scored too soon after our goal. When you concede three goals in the first half it’s difficult to come back from.
“I think that from the beginning we had the mentality of going for the win, but when you concede three goals it seems that you haven’t given it your all. I don’t believe that; I think the result was too heavy to reflect our second half showing, but we will continue working.”
He continued: “You get out of this situation by being self-critical. We lost the match, but we came out in the second half with desire, motivation and intensity. That is what we are going to do until the end of the season.
“We have to pick ourselves up. Not in the game against Mallorca, but rather tomorrow. We have to work all week to prepare for that match.”
Not only did he assist, it was an all-round display at the Mestalla as he made three tackles – only two players managed more. Meanwhile, he made more key passes than any other player on the pitch, with three.
