VALENCIA defender Anthony Reveillere has admitted that he has been forced to adapt to a much quicker pace of football since his move to the reigning Spanish champions from Rennes.

The 23-year-old has joined Valencia on loan until the end of the season, and will complete a permanent switch in the summer.

Reveillere made his debut for the Che in last weekend's league win over Mallorca, and revealed he was glad of the support that he received from his new team-mates.

"Fundamentally, I think the main difference (between Spain and France) is the speed of the game," said Reveillere.

"But in this team there are players who make it easy for me to fit in."

The Frenchman went on to reveal that he had been made to feel very welcome at the club.

"I've had a good reception.

"It's not easy arriving not speaking the language, but my team-mates are helping me a lot."

Reveillere also took time to pay tribute to compatriot Raynald Denoueix - boss of Real Sociedad - who has led the Basque side to the top of La Liga this term.

"He (Denoueix) did a great job in France and for his first season at Real Sociedad, he's also doing very well.

"I expected it, but it surprised me a little that he should get good results so quickly.

"Real Madrid are not Valencia's only rival for the league, Real (Sociedad) are also there."
