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.
Barcelona managed to keep their incredible from going despite resting high profile players like Victor Valdes for the Copa del Rey quarterfinals. The Spanish La Liga table toppers were playing a traditional 4-3-3. Victor Valdes was rested so Jose Manuel Pinto took his position as the goal stopper for the Catalan club.
