After a glittering career that has seen him won almost everything available in football, former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has decided to call it quit from the game.
Valdes, 35, played at Middlesbrough last season and left the club after they got relegated to the Championship.
Valdes started his career at Barcelona where he spent most of his playing time winning six La Liga titles and three Champions League amongst other trophies before switching to Manchester United in 2014.
The Spanish shot-stopper also had a stint with Standard Liege of Belgium in the 2015/2016 season and won the Belgian Cup with them.
Despite being the undisputed number one at Barcelona, Valdes was a second choice goalkeeper for the Spanish national team behind Iker Casillas.
He made 20 appearances for the La Roja and was part of the team that won the 2010 world cup in South Africa and the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.
Victor Valdes is retiring to focus on his new TV production company where he is expected to present a TV show that will feature former players that has already been sold to 12 countries.
