The Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova has confirmed that he does not have any worries about the current goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The 28-year-old goalkeeper made a costly error in the recent match with Real Madrid, which finished 3-2 in the end.
This was the first leg of the Supercopa Espana match between the two clubs. Even though Barcelona go into the second leg with an advantage in the tie, the situation could have been made much better if they did not concede the late goal as a result of the error made by Victor Valdes. Barcelona will be hoping to lift the first trophy of the season, but this error gives Real Madrid to recover from the one goal deficit.
Meanwhile, Tito Vilanova has also said that he is confident that the winger Alexis Sanchez will be able to find his best form over the course of the next few weeks. The former Udinese winger was not at his best in the match against Real Madrid. There have been suggestions that the £ 30 million signing will be dropped from the next few matches, but Tito Vilanova said that he still has faith in the player. Barcelona have made a great start to the new season by winning all the opening matches.
"It surprises me that Victor is being doubted, even though we have won three Liga titles thanks to him. I have seen him play very well so far this season; he is very strong mentally. I agree that he did not play well the other day, but he did the things that we asked of him and really helped us. Perhaps he lacked a ruthless edge, but I'm sure he will do very well this season," said Tito Vilanova after the match against Real Madrid. Barcelona will face Real Madrid in the second leg shortly.
