Juan Carlos Valer??n has been the most pleasant surprise during Deportivo’s tour in Denmark. The Canarian had a good performance in both friendly games against Fremad Amager and Brondby IF. Now coach Lotina hopes that Valer??n will truly become into the most important ?signing’ for the season 2008/2009.

Canarian playmaker Juan Carlos Valer??n performed for forty five minutes in each one of the two friendly matches played in Denmark. El Flaco didn’t play too much during the end of the past liga season since he was returning after a double injury in the knee. All the fans were asking if the midfielder would return to be the same one of the past, and his performance in the Scandinavian tour is solving all the doubts.

And it’s that Valer??n had a good performance in both encounters, he even scored a goal and gave two great passes that ended in two goals. The Canarian said after the game against Brondby that he’s feeling positive sensations for the new season ?I was feeling very comfortable on the pitch. I am really happy, because I wasn’t expecting for this.?

The-Arguinegu?n born player also commented about the situation of the whole team ?We’ve faced a team that was in better shape and we’re able to compete, anyhow the important thing now is the Intertoto, and the key is the first game because we just have been training during the last two weeks.?

Maybe the happiest man with the current status of Valer??n is coach Miguel Angel Lotina, as he said to reporters after the game with Brondly ?Without doubt, he’s the biggest advantage that we could have.? The Basque trainer said at the end of the past liga campaign that Valer??n would be ?the most important signing for the season 2008/2009.?
