"There were never any doubts about [playing] Chumi, none. We did everything right," said Valverde. 

"We will be in the draw for the quarter-final. We have no doubts, not before, not during and not now. We have the security of knowing we did everything right.

"We knew that Chumi was banned and not available for [the La Liga] game against Eibar, but he could play in the cup. We're convinced we acted correctly. Absolutely. We've won where we had to win to progress: on the pitch."
