For anyone doubting that Victor Valdés is one of the best keepers out there.. read this, facts and stats backing him up!

Also here is an article abt Victor I wrote in 2011 http://www.totalbarca.com/2011/opinio...

Victor Valdés didn't start to play football because he wanted to. He did it because his brother and father had noticed that the young kid had a huge talent. But Victor soon started to hate it. When the team scored his teammates would celebrate, while he would stand alone in the goal. And when he let in a goal everyone would be sad. He didn't understand it, he didn't understand why he had to be a goalkeeper.

10 years later, when he was 18 years old, being a goalkeeper was still something that he hated, but he was still doing it.

As he broke into the first team at the age of 20, Victor didn't hate his job anymore, but he had still had trouble with enjoying it.

In 2008 however Josep Guardiola became his coach, and Pep managed to teach Victor to for the first time in his life enjoy playing football.. since then Victor Valdés has become the best goalkeeper in the world, breaking new records after each other..

This video is an attempt to show how the boy who hated being a goalkeeper became the best in the world... enjoy!
