Manchester City manager praises his former goalkeeper

Pep Guardiola and Victor Valdes will see each other this Saturday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City receive the visit of Aitor Karanka's Middlesbrough and Valdés will be in the starting line-up.

In his pre-match press conference, Guardiola spoke about his former Barcelona goalkeeper. Without him, everything would have been different.

Pep's quotes

"This will be one of the greatest things this year, see him again. I am really happy he is back where he deserves to be".

"He didn't deserve to finish his career that way, with all the injuries and everything that happened".

"Our success at Barcelona wouldn't have been possible without Víctor".

"He made the save that took you to the Chamoions League final. The save that took you to another level".
