In a recent interview for the daily Ace, Cillessen ensured that it is happy for being able to defend the T-shirt of Valencia. "It likes me the club and the city. There is good changing room and Marcelino works with intensity", commented, on his first days, adding that "I wanted to play, liked me the proposal that did me Valencia, accepted it and am happy to be here".

Only I carry three weeks here, but for me Valencia has it everything. There it did not play. Ter Stegen Is a big goalkeeper that went doing better. I was three years very there, but was missing me play and I want to play, no only train", commented.
Also it left clear that did not doubt in accepting the proposal of Valencia when it received it. "Valencia called me and I said "yes, want". It was easy. As I already have said, for me come to Valencia is to step forward in my career, because I what want to is to play. After three years in the bench of the Barcelona, I want to play. Here I can have more options. It decides the míster. But I want to play", explained.
Net, the relief of Cillessen
In the FC Barcelona knew that they could not dilate the course of Jasper Cillessen another season, since the cancerbero Dutch had asked to leave after three years being the eternal acting of Marc-André ter Stegen. After an unimportant offer of the Benfica, appeared the Valency with a proposal that in the Camp Nou accepted willingly.
It was then when it arose the possibility to make a barter in the goal, allowing the course of Cillessen to Mestalla in return of the signing of Net, goalkeeper that has made big performances in his two seasons in the capital of the Turia. Now, the Brazilian will have to learn to coexist with Ter Stegen and will have to give it everything to be to the level when it touch him play.
