MICHU BACKS VALDES

The Celtic striker Miku, who is currently on loan at the Spanish club Getafe, has said that he is extremely dumb founded at the reason for the Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes getting a lot of negative press.

The Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been the number one at the club since making his debut back in 2002. However, he has always been regarded as someone who is not the best in the world. Victor Valdes has always played understudy to the Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas at the Spanish national team level. Despite this, the Celtic striker Miku considers him to be one of the best in the world.

Celtic will be taking on Barcelona in the Champions League group stage matches looking to do the unthinkable by getting a result at the camp Nou, which is one of the toughest places to visit in all of Europe. The 30-year-old Venezuela striker Miku, however, believes that Barcelona certainly do have some weaknesses that Celtic will be able to exploit. However, the goalkeeper Victor Valdes is not one of them according to the striker. Celtic will be coming into the match after having recently won their first European encounter away from home in the form of the 3-2 win over Spartak Moscow.

"Doubting Valdes is like doubting your mum. We have to take advantage of their weak defence. In strategic moves, they can be damaged. They have injuries so that might give us a chance. The game will be seen around the world so that's maximum motivation [for us]. I have won, lost and drawn to Barcelona so [I know that] this will be a difficult game. They are the best [team] in the world right now," said the Celtic striker. Celtic will be playing two matches against Barcelona home and away.
