The defender was part of the championship-winning squad in 2001/02 and wants to see the club step up its level of performance and challenge again for major honours.
"Valencia has a lot of work to do to get back to the level of the side that was fighting for the Liga title and the Champions League," said the Argentine international.
"We have to become serious contenders to our rivals if we want to win anything."
The former Velez Sarsfield man is currently away with the rest of the Valencia squad in Switzerland and he feels it is up to each of the players to improve the team's performances.
"Each one of us has to look at ourselves and each other and improve in every way we can to help Valencia."
The Mestalla outfit have signed Fabian Canobbio and Ricardo Oliveira during the summer months to strengthen their squad.
"The new players aren't going to be able to win the title on their own," claimed Pellegrino.
"The players that are already in the team have to help them in making it work."
