Villarreal coach Manuel Pellegrini was pleased to see his side end their UEFA Cup group campaign on a high note despite having already earned their spot in the next phase.

Goals from Rio Antonio Mavuba and Jon Dahl Tomasson - whose 69th-minute strike came just 60 seconds after Rivaldo had equalised for AEK - earned the Yellow Submarine a 2-1 win and first place in the standings.

Pellegrini said: "We have had a very good game. The team were very focused. We warned them not to relax just because they had already qualified. We have been able to score in all our matches (in the UEFA Cup)."
