I want Valdes to get a chance at Man Utd, says Del Bosque

The Spain coach hinted he is frustrated at the lack of first-team action the former Barcelona goalkeeper has seen at Old Trafford


Vicente del Bosque has admitted that he wishes Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes was benefiting from more game time with the Red Devils.

The Spanish goalkeeper joined Louis Van Gaal’s side on an 18-month contract in January but has yet to make an appearance for the senior side. 

And his coach at international level regrets the fact that the 33-year-old is not getting any meaningful playing action.

“I know that he is training. I try to look whether he is on the United bench and I can see that he is currently a substitute,” he told Cadena Cope.

“I wish him to play because he has always had sensational behaviour with Spain. I would like him to enjoy his job [rather than being on the bench] because at his age it is important to be active.”
