Victor Valdes has yet to make an appearance for United’s first team since officially joining the club in the January transfer window. His problem is United’s best performing player this season is David de Gea, who almost on a weekly basis is making world class saves to help his team.

Valdes has sung the praises of his team mate and claimed that he is currently the best keeper in the world, in an interview with United Review.

You are always waiting for your opportunity to play and train every day to show your performance to the manager. But now David is in a very, very high performance level. I think he is the most important goalkeeper in the world in this moment. So it is difficult to play and, of course, I must accept this. For me, the top [keeper] now is David. I see him every day in training. I watch him every game, every week, and his performances right now are amazing. Every week, he makes saves to help the team so I am very happy for him and also for the fans. I always hear them sing the song of David De Gea, so I think they are very happy with David for the level of performance he has shown in the last few years. I feel the fans are definitely very happy with the job he is doing.
