The Catalan goalkeeper is about to sign for Belgium's Standard de Liège
"Thank you all for your support during these months of hard work for me, I will never forget! See you soon!" Through those lines Victor Valdes announced to the Manchester United family that he was leaving, in a tweet published in English on his official account.
Here ends the Catalan goalkeeper's adventure with the English club after a promising start that turned into an ugly finsh because of the tense relationship he has with Van Gaal. One year ago now, Valdés arrived at Manchester after recovering from a serious knee injury and with the bad Monaco experience in mind, where he got evicted consequently to an unsuccessful medical examination. Although he played a game at the beginning, the arrival of Van Gaal, who does not count on him, marginalised him to the reserve's team.
Ara, Valdés ha pogut deixar el Manchester United i, segons diversos mitjans, té tots els números de fitxar per l'Standard de Lieja belga. En una lliga menys competitiva, Valdés confia a tornar a gaudir del futbol després d'uns anys complicats.
Now, Valdés could leave United, and according to various media, he is very likely to sign for Belgian side Standard de Liège. In a less competitive league, Valdés believes he will be able to enjoy football after a few complicated years.
