Having led his side to victory in the UEFA Super Cup last week, Diego Simeone was proud of his Atletico Madrid players at Valencia.
Luka Modric has made it clear that suggestions he called Inter to tell them he wanted to leave Real Madrid are far from the truth.
Sevilla have signed Maxime Gonalons on loan from Roma, just a year after the midfielder moved to Italy from Lyon.
Lionel Messi will miss out on UEFA's Player of the Year award, which will go to Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo or Mohamed Salah.
It had been suggested Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic could retire from international football, but both are in Croatia's latest squad.
Valencia held Atletico Madrid to a 1-1 draw in their LaLiga opener, with Rodrigo Moreno netting a second-half equaliser.
