Athletic Bilbao Head Coach Ernesto Valverde has hailed the talent of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielders Alex Teixeira and Douglas Costa.
The Spanish tactician will see his side take on Shakhtar in the Champions League on Wednesday and he admits he is concerned by the Brazilian duo’s capabilities.
Shakhtar are a dangerous team going forward,” he said, as reported by UEFA.com.
“They usually take the initiative and they have very fast players in attack, like Douglas and Teixeira.
“We have to be very careful because they are good and dangerous when they get space, and they are used to winning. That's a big plus for them.”
