Daniel Wass was left out of Valencia’s squad for the match against Atlético. The Dane did not travel with the rest of the team on the plane that left for the Spanish capital at noon from Manises. Wass, despite the fact that he has exercised in the last three days with the group and was physically fit to play, was left out due to a technical decision, after the conversation that Bordalás had with Wass on Friday.
As reported by AS, Wass, once he learned of Atlético’s interest, planned not to play again with Valencia even if they didn’t let him go. And so far it is.Daniel Wass had missed the last two Valencia games, although both due to coronavirus. The Dane was neither against Atlético Baleares in the Copa del Rey nor against Sevilla on the last day of the League. Wass tested positive the Sunday after the match against Real Madrid, precisely on the day in which Atlético de Madrid’s interest in acquiring his services transcended. Now the player goes one step further in his position of wanting to leave and will not play against Atlético.
Valencia continues to maintain that Atlético’s offer has not yet been accepted. The Mestalla club hopes not only that it improves but also continues to warn that until they find a substitute, they will not let him out. There are nine market days left to reach an understanding between all parties. Now, for the moment, the one losing is Bordalás and the team, who are losing an important player for tonight’s match.
Nor does Cillessen travel to Madrid, due to injury, while Carlos Soler returns to the list.
