Soldado: I want to be important for Valencia in the Champions League

Roberto Soldado feels that the Champions League is the best competition to play in, and the striker hopes to do well for Valencia in its quest to win.

The Primera Division side was beaten 2-1 by Bayern Munich in its Group F opener, and Soldado is eager to help his team achieve better results in the remaining five group games.

"The Champions League is the optimum competition, the most beautiful you can play in," Soldado stated to UEFA.com.

Soldado added, "You feel the importance because every weekend in your domestic championship, it's what you strive for. You're defending the colors of your team against all of Europe.

"I just hope the ratio of goals I get in the Champions League stays the same and that they mean something important for the team.

"Valencia have ambition. We're a young team that intend to win important things and I'll be doing my best to make sure that happens."

Valencia locks horns with Lille on Tuesday evening.
