Dani Parejo, a 100-touch masterclass

The Yellows midfielder was one of the best players on the pitch throughout the game with Real Valladolid

A fantastic performance with exactly 100 touches. Dani Parejo was one of the stars of the show during Villarreal’s important victory at the Estadio José Zorrilla (0-2). The midfielder from Coslada put on an exhibition of midfield play, touching the ball 100 times while maintaining an impressive 84% passing accuracy.
“It was a great game, but also a difficult one. In these kinds of matches, when the home team are fighting for survival, it’s always a very tricky game. However, we managed the game well and deserved to go in at half time with a lead, even though we couldn’t break the deadlock. In the second half, we barely conceded a chance, Gerard scored a fantastic goal, and we defended our lead well until Capoue’s second goal sealed the victory. They are three really important points”, said the Yellows No.5 after his great performance in Pucela.
