Victor Valdes posts new tweet after Champions League squad snub

Published 5 Comments

Manchester United’s out-of-favour goalkeeper Victor Valdes has pledged to keep working hard at Old Trafford, despite being cast aside by manager Louis van Gaal.

The former Barcelona star posted a new tweet late this morning, thanking fans for their continued support.

He added: “No matter what happens. The only way I know is to work hard every day.”

Valdes has been ostracised at Manchester United following his high-profile bust-up with Van Gaal last season.

The veteran Dutch coach was infuriated with the goalkeeper after he allegedly refused to play in an Under-21s match.

Valdes left out of Champions League squad

Although he featured twice for the Red Devils at the end of last season - following an injury to David de Gea - Valdes was left out of Manchester United’s squad for the pre-season tour of the USA, while his kit was moved from the first-team dressing room to the Under-21’s before the 2015-16 campaign got underway.

On Wednesday, meanwhile, Manchester United’s Champions League squad was announced and, as expected, Valdes’ name did not feature.

The 33-year-old was expected to join Turkish side Besiktas before the summer transfer window closed on Tuesday - the move broke down at the eleventh hour - after Van Gaal signed a replacement for the Spaniard in the form of Argentina international Sergio Romero.

But Valdes will remain a Manchester United player until at least January.

It’s safe to assume, though, that the former Barcelona keeper has played his final match for the Red Devils - barring a dramatic and unexpected U-turn from Van Gaal.
