Dutchman told Spaniard to sign for Man United

Reports have claimed Frans Hoeck was key to Victor Valdes signing for Manchester United.

United’s Dutch goalkeeper coach worked with Valdes at Barcelona and convinced the Spaniard to leave his training stint at Liverpool and relocate to Carrington.

El Pais says Valdes was happy to accept the invitation as he worked his way back from a serious knee injury.

United under 21 Coach Warren Joyce said: “What a world champion, he shows the kids the right behavior and is an example to his teammates.

“He’s a very humble person and a model professional.”
