The goalkeeper of Barcelona FC, Victor Valdes, has said that he refused to wear the captain’s armband in the 58th minute of the match against Athletic Bilbao because that armband couldn’t fit in his arms. His biceps were too large for that.

In the match against Bilbao, neither Carles Puyol nor Andres Iniesta was playing. So, in their absence, Xavi Hernandez was captaining the side. But, in the 58th minute, he was substituted by Lionel Messi. So, he had to give that armband to someone else.

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has said that he will not be surprised if the replacement for Guardiola – Tito Vilanova – proves to be as successful as his predecessor with Barcelona.

Barcelona and Spain goalkeeper Victor Valdes has said that he is extremely wary of the threat posed by Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo. The former AC Milan midfielder is one of the established names in world football.

He has been responsible for Juventus winning their first league title since 2003, which is surprising given that AC Milan allowed him to leave on a free transfer only last season. It has proven to be one of the worst decisions by a club in recent seasons after Pirlo has demonstrated his ability to influence the game in a huge manner on more than one occasion.


Despite winning the champions league on three occasions, La Liga on 5 occasions and the Copa Del Rey, it is surprising that Valdes has failed to achieve success on the international stage.

Despite having a better goals conceded record for the last 10 consecutive season compared to Spain’s first choice goalie Iker Casillas, Valdes has never been able to challenge his international counterpart for the no 1 shirt for the national side.
