Recent Manchester United signing Victor Valdes got his first taste of competitive English football last night during Manchester United’s U21 2-1 victory over rivals Liverpool.
Valdes who joined recently on a free transfer posted on instagram “Was a great honor to win today with the unders 21 in my first game against Liverpoool. Well Done Guys!”
Lining up alongside a number of familiar named youngsters at the club such as Nick Powell, Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett the United side beat Liverpool thanks to goals from McNair and Powell but unfortunately for Valdes he was unable to keep a clean sheet having conceded a first half goal to Jerome Sinclair.
Valdes is expected to return to the United first team’s bench this weekend for their Premier League clash with Leicester City.
