Victor Valdes made a cracking double save against Manchester United but ended the game with an embarrassing slip-up
Valdes slipped over, Antonio Valencia made the most of it and Jose Mourinho’s side ended up winning 3-1.
Middlesbrough’s Victor Valdes had a rollercoaster of a game against his former club Manchester United at the Riverside Stadium.
The peak? Undoubtedly his belter of a double save. The pit? When he slipped over right at the end of the game, allowing the Red Devils to score a third goal.
The thing is, Valdes’s side may have lost 3-1 but he did make Man United work for it. At first, at least…
Then came that cracking double save which got everyone talking on Twitter.
In the end, though, Man United’s attack started to prove too much.
Way too much, in fact.
In the last few minutes of the game, Valdes had an embarrassing moment – he slipped over. Antonio Valencia capitalised on it to wrap up a win that moves his side up to fifth. And people couldn’t believe it.
But Valdes, you still pulled off that cracking double save. Remember that.
