Valencia Have Cillessen’s Replacement At Home

Valencia will not sign a new goalkeeper in the winter market. Cristian Rivero will be tasked with fighting Jaume Doménech to start for Valencia.

Jasper Cillessen went under the knife on Friday to treat a ruptured muscle that he suffered in his right leg. The Dutch keeper could be out until the start of February.

But Valencia, as ‘AS’ note, will not sign a new goalkeeper in the January window. The replacement of the ex-Barca keeper is already part of the Valencia squad.

Jaume Doménech will still start and it will be Cristian Rivero, who still hasn’t made his first-team debut, that will be tasked with increasing the competition in the sticks and be the alternative.

The 22-year-old keeper has been called up to the first team 26 times, as the numbers of ProFootballDB show, but still hasn’t played. Everything seems to indicate that he might do so this season.
