Guedes: "I was very keen to return"

The Portuguese featured for 15 minutes against Real Sociedad

Two months and 2 days on from his last appearance, Gonçalo Guedes returned to action for Valencia CF in the 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad. The Portuguese came on for the final 15 minutes of the contest and was pleased to be back.

"I was very keen to return. It's been a little over two months in which I've been doing everything possible to come back as soon as possible, and I'm happy," he said after the game.

"I know that I'm still not ready to play 90 minutes, because I still need to get on the pace, and I have to take things slowly to help the team as much as possible."

"I'm very happy and I thank the fans for their reaction. They are very important to us and we want to do everything to make them happy -as we are with them."

"We wanted more from this game, above all because it was at Mestalla. Real Sociedad have a good team, but we did everything we could to win. We didn't manage it, and now we have to keep working in order to improve," concluded the returning VCF star.
