Victor Valdes made his Manchester United debut yesterday and has sung the praises of the Old Trafford crowd.
It felt very good. David asked to come off very quickly and the next thing I knew I was on the pitch. It was a great feeling to be on the pitch at Old Trafford, the fans welcomed me very well and for that reason I am happy. I wasn’t happy with the result because it wasn’t a good one for us. It was a lucky goal for them, but I’m happy I made my debut. It was all very quick: David came off and I didn’t know what was happening, but then someone said ‘Victor, get in there'”. It’s been a good few months; my team-mates have treated me well here. The coach has also treated me well. The truth is that it has all been good. We have an incredible group of fans – to come on and be welcomed like that is incredible for a footballer.
