Boro fans troll Man City with excellent Victor Valdes chant

It's not been a bad day for Middlesbrough fans. Not only have they collected a valuable point on the road against Manchester City, but a chant they've created a chant that's now doing the rounds on the internet.

At the age of 34, Valdes is once again showing what a class act he is between the sticks with some fine displays for the promoted side, proving that his ill-fated spell at Manchester United is well and truly behind him.

And to show their appreciation for his services, they created a brand new chant for him during the 1-1 draw with City that also doubled up as something to wind up their opposite numbers.

The song centred around the amount of trophies the player has won in comparison to City over the years.

And a quick glance at their respective records suggests that they aren't totally wide of the mark.

Since making his debut back in the 2000-01 season, the goalkeeper has gone on to collect 24 trophies with Barcelona, Spain and Standard Liege. And that's excluding the nine personal awards he's gathered, too.

However, while City have lifted a total of 26 trophies since their formation back in 1894, only a fraction of those have come in the top flight.

But whether there was a serious element to it or not, the fact remains that the song is a classic piece of humour to come from the stands once again.

Valdes, though, has been a key figure in Middlesbrough's early start that has seen them pull four points clear of the relegation zone.

And while his best days are probably behind him, there is absolutely no doubt that he is still a class act and a credit to the Premier League.
