Manchester United fans sympathise with Victor Valdes as he nears exit

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United fans have expressed their sympathy towards Victor Valdes as the Spaniard closes in on a move to Standard Liege.

The former Barcelona keeper, who has been frozen out at Man United following a disagreement with Louis van Gaal, tweeted on Thursday to thank fans for their support.

Valdes’ time at Old Trafford has been a disaster from start to finish and the majority of United fans criticised van Gaal’s treatment of him:

It’s safe to say that fans are just keen for Valdes to move on as quickly as possible so all parties involved can draw a line under the affair.

The keeper is rightly regarded as one of the most talented players of his generation and it has been a shame to see his United career pan out in the way it has.

It remains to be seen how his potential departure would affect harmony amongst the first team as the likes of Ander Herrera and Juan Mata would have been good friends with Valdes.
