Valdes targets Barca trophy haul


Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is hoping the club can add to their impressive trophy haul with a few more pieces of silverware this season.

The Catalan giants have won three La Liga, two European Cup, two FIFA Club World Cup and one Copa del Rey title in the last three years, enjoying a significant period of dominance both domestically and abroad.

It's an era of domination which Valdes is hoping can continue, and after enjoying victory over Santos in Japan last weekend, the Spanish stopper is aiming to add to his own personal collection.

"We have shown that we want to win a lot of titles. When we lift a trophy, we do it as if it was our first. We want to win more," Valdes told the official Barca site.

"The Club World Cup is a title that’s really important to us. We all must respect this title a bit more, because it’s difficult to win it."

The 29-year-old stopper also spoke on manager Pep Guardiola, who is yet to sign a new contract at the Nou Camp and could leave the club in the summer.

Valdes is in no doubt that he'll stay with the club though, and has hailed the 'maestro' for helping get the best out of all the players at the club.

"Day in and day out, he’s a maestro," added the keeper.

"Each training session is like going to class at university. He never allows you to relax. He taught me how to enjoy the game and to play team football."
