Victor Valdes has hit back at Louis van Gaal following the Manchester United manager’s public criticism of the goalkeeper on Wednesday.

The Manchester United boss appeared to suggest that Valdes’ future at the club was in doubt after the shot-stopper allegedly refused to play for the club’s reserve team last season.

Valdes has not travelled to the United States for the Red Devils’ pre-season tour amid suggestions that he is set to quit the Old Trafford club before the start of next season.

However, Valdes appeared to indicate his surprise at Van Gaal’s comments on Thursday, by posting a series of pictures of himself taking part in some of the club’s youth team matches on his Instagram account.

The goalkeeper posted the photo montage above on Instagram and wrote: “…..? #respect”

Valdes started just one first-team game for the Red Devils last season as Van Gaal’s men finished fourth in the Premier League table.
