Australia's number one Mat Ryan is already showing he has what it takes to succeed at Valencia and one Mestalla graduate has claimed the goalkeeper will not lack for anything around the club.
The 23-year-old Socceroos goalkeeper signed a six-year deal with Valencia in July after two impressive seasons with Club Brugge.
According to former Australian youth international Theo Markelis, Ryan could not have picked a better club to take the next step in his career.
"He'll be loving it," Markelis told Goal Australia.
"I mean, it's a great city. Everyone's fantastic at the club, you know, it's a very big club, a very historical club and I loved every single moment of being there."
Markelis moved to Valencia as a 15-year-old and spent three years in their academy, playing alongside Real Madrid midfielder Isco.
The 23-year-old forward is now at Hume City in the NPL Victoria.
On Wednesday night, Ryan made a number of fine saves to help his new club to a 3-1 victory over Monaco in the La Liga outfit's UEFA Champions League play-off first leg on Wednesday.
The Australian gloveman impressed opposition coach Leonardo Jardim on his competitive debut for Valencia.
Jardim was left to rue a brilliant finger-tip save from Ryan, who pushed Bernardo Silva's strike onto the post in the first half.
"If that had gone in, the goal would have changed the rest of the game," UEFA.com reported.
Monaco welcomes Valencia to the Stade Louis II for Tuesday's return leg.
