Rijkaard said: “Perhaps we need a little confidence at difficult grounds like the Mestalla. We cannot always win. I have left happy with the good attitude of the team. If we continue like that, we will have opportunities to win. The teams that play on the counterattack complicate things for us.
“Now isn’t the time to drop our heads – nor to lose it. You’re going to lose games like this one against Valencia. The Liga isn’t decided by this result.”
