Espanyol coach Ernesto Valverde was left stunned by the record-breaking Real Valladolid goal that paved the way for his side to suffer only their fourth defeat of the Primera Liga season.

Valladolid striker Joseba Llorente scored the fastest goal in Primera Liga history when he netted after just seven seconds at the Jose Zorrilla stadium, and Valverde said of that strike: "It is the first time we´ve almost started a game trailing!

"It was a brilliant piece of play which would have pleased the local fans but for me, as the visiting coach, I find it difficult to explain. I have no words to justify what happened from a logical point of view. I have never seen a goal so quick."
