VALDES PRAISES GUARDIOLA

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has praised Pep Guardiola by saying that he has changed Barcelona completely. The Spanish goalkeeper was part of Rijkaard's squad when the Blaugrana were conquering Spain and Europe and has been a vital presence between the sticks for Guardiola's widely heralded team.

“We tried to play the ball, pressure all over the pitch and play with a high defensive line, [while now under Pep] we are more prepared to take risks at the back and if that works then there are more goals to be had. Barca have prospered under Guardiola," Valdes told the club's official website.

Victor Valdes also gave his take on the possibility of Barcelona winning the treble this season.
