Cavani: "I've come here to contribute and do my best"

The Uruguayan forward speaks to VCF Media after his debut for Valencia CF

Edinson Cavani made his debut for Valencia CF as part of the starting XI in the victory over RC Celta. After the match, the Uruguayan striker spoke to VCF Media about his first experience with the team.

His debut
I felt very anxious. I was working with a lot of desire to be able to play. I was working hard for it and it happened in a very nice way, with a victory. I really wanted to play. I had been training for a few days and I achieved my objective, which was to get minutes.

I'm here to contribute and to do my best. Everything needs preparation and we are doing well. I hope to get better and better.

It was divine here. I had experienced it from the stands before. The team won, which is the important thing. It is an extra joy to be able to win on the day of my debut.

The fans
There were many Uruguayan flags. It makes me very happy that people from my country can come to the stadium. It is important that the fans spur us on since you can feel it on the pitch.

Positive thinking
We have to win. We must always work with the mentality that Valencia CF are a team that need and want to fight to be at the top of the table. We have to keep working and improving, step by step. During the international break we have to work hard to continue this run, which is something we have to do.

His shirt
I'm going to keep it. This club's shirt is a great one. Plus, it's my first home game. I'm very happy.
