VICTOR VALDES RETURNS TO ACTION AGAINST KV KORTRIJK

Ex-Barcelona goal keeper, Victor Valdes, played in the Jupilier Pro League Play-off II against fellow Belgian opponent KV Kortrijk.

The goal keeper, who is widely reported to be interested in a move back to the English Premier League, will leave current club Standard Liege in the summer when his current deal lapses.

The goal stopper played for Spanish giants from 2002/2003 season before leaving the club after the 2013/2014 season as he dropped in the pecking order. He made the move to English team, Manchester United but could make an impact. When Current coach, Louis Van Gaal took over, he was snubbed before being sent to Standard Liege on loan.

The 34-year old Spanish player played 530 games for the Catalan giant which also picked up the UEFA Champions league last year. He has prosecuted eight games for Standard Liege since joining in January on loan. Since joining the Belgian club team, he is easily one of the key players. He helped Standard Liege win the Belgian cup – Beker Van Belgie, playing against Club Brugge on March 20 in a keenly contested game that ended 2-1.

Before leaving Manchester united, it was reported in the media that the goal keeper had a little face-off with the team’s handler. Since moving out on loan, the player has gradually found his rhythm.

The player told his agent that he wants a new club as against continuing with Standard Liege or returning to The Red Devils. He told the agent of his preference for English Premier League sides where he can get action at the team.

The goal keeper has an impressive record. Only one player in history, Clarence Seedorf, has won the Champions League more often times than the player. Also, just 20 more players have been in more UEFA Champions League games when considering the history of the tournament.
