Victor Valdes writes classy letter to bid farewell to Barcelona [English translation]
Victor Valdes was in terrific form before picking up an injury in Barcelona’s n the 3-0 win over Celta Vigo in March.
The much-maligned goalkeeper proved himself to be super reliable over the past few seasons and missed the run-in for Barcelona as well as the World Cup for Spain.
Valdes now seems set to join Monaco, despite interest from Manchester City, and bade farewell to his Barcelona team mates earlier this week.
He has also written a classy farewell letter to Barcelona and their fans across the globe.
Thanking a whole host of coaches. Valdes credits Louis van Gaal for “building this historic Barça side, which I have been privileged to be part of.”
And, he goes on to credit Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola and Tito Vilanova… but not Tata Martino.
Before crediting the fans…
