Valencia insist Francis Coquelin's arrival “doesn't affect” Geoffrey Kondogbia but admit bringing back Joao Cancelo is “very complicated”.
There had been fears on Valencia's part that Coquelin had been signed to replace Kondogbia, but Coach Marcelino made it clear the former Arsenal midfielder would complement his fellow Frenchman at Mestalla.
“Under no circumstances does Coquelin affect the situation with Kondogbia because he's suited to all the players in our team,” he said at a Press conference.
“Will Cancelo return this month? It's very complicated. Obviously I can't make evaluations.”
