Victor Valdes living in sad exile at Manchester United

The ESPN FC crew look at Victor Valdes' difficult situation at Manchester United.

Victor Valdes says that goalkeepers are always alone, emotionally and physically distanced from their teammates.

He admits he's shy, an introvert who likes solitude, and that one of the reasons he loves windsurfing is the feeling of being out there on the sea a long way from land where no one can bother him except the occasional fish swimming past.

Yet the scene was still a sad, lonely one -- even for him -- and the message felt a little like a cry for help. Or for comprehension at least.


Juan Mata happy to play in any position for Manchester United

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings which see Manchester United ousted in favour of Manchester City and Arsenal.
After Juan Mata lauds Louis van Gaal, ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop tells Alexis Nunes which style of manager he preferred from his playing days.

Juan Mata has said he is happy to play on the right wing for Manchester United, rather than looking to return to the No. 10 position.

Mata, 27, who was United's £37.1 million club-record signing when he joined from Chelsea in January 2014, has been an ever-present this season, cutting in from the right in Louis van Gaal's 4-2-3-1 formation.

Republic of Ireland match-winner Shane Long reflects on an historic victory over world champions Germany.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is likely to join Mario Gotze on the sidelines for Germany's final Euro 2016 qualifier against Georgia on Sunday.

The Germany captain, 31, felt his left thigh tighten in the final training session ahead of the world champions' game against Republic of Ireland on Thursday.

It was then decided that he should sit out the 1-0 loss in Dublin.

David Beckham's Manchester United career should have ended differently

Alex Ferguson and David Beckham will return to Old Trafford together for the first time in over a decade.

To this day, former Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz has been unable to figure out why David Beckham and Roberto Carlos became such good friends while at the Bernabeu.

"David doesn't speak Spanish and Roberto doesn't speak English," recalled current Iran manager Queiroz. "Yet they'd speak for one hour a day, they'd spend a lot of time together. I still can't work out what they were saying."

"They were probably talking about girls," laughed a former teammate when he heard that one.

Beckham surprised...
