“Levante will be motivated at the Camp Nou”

Jordi Clos

Víctor Valdés is aware of the dangers of the next league opponent who “have been getting results lately.” The keeper feels Barça’s confidence has risen after a series of good wins.

After the fine display at Celtic Park, Barça’s attention returns to the league. This weekend they face the bottom club, Levante, but Víctor Valdés, feels it is a game that requires the utmost caution. “Levante will be motivated at the Camp Nou. They’ve been getting results lately and have just had an important win against Osasuna” he said, before going on to comment on the off-the-field problems going on down in Valencia at the moment, claiming “Professionals always go onto the pitch to do as well as they can”.

Confident team

Things are getting better and Glasgow was not the only evidence of that." He also added that he simply loves playing "even when it's just in training."

No comparisons with Madrid

We should not take any notice of the leader because we have our own commitments, and like theirs, they are not easy” said Víctor Valdés, who feels Madrid and Barcelona have their own individual ways of playing. He thinks they can make up the points difference at the top of table , but that things need to be taken “step by step”.

Not just about winning
Valdés did not want to speak about the second goal conceded against Celtic but just said that “historically, at this club, you can win by four or six goals, but they will always look at the goal you let in. When we win I’m happy, I don’t care what the score is. But when you let a goal in, you have too study what happened on a personal level and also with the defence”.
