New Valencia boss Albert Celades cut a lonely figure as he discussed his side's Champions League clash with Chelsea.

The LaLiga side face the Blues in the opening game of Champions League Group H, but arrived at Stamford Bridge in a certain amount of disarray.

The players are currently refusing to talk to the media in the wake of last week's sacking of popular manager Marcelino, who led them to Copa del Rey success and secured Champions League qualification last season.

A 5-2 defeat in Celades' first match in charge - against Barcelona at the weekend - presumably did not improve morale.

Celades, 43, duly took press conference duties alone ahead of Tuesday night's clash.

He said: 'Obviously it's not an ideal situation but it's the players decision, really. I don't have much more to say about that.'
