Thiago responds to Maradona

Thiago Alcántara, who this morning has introduced a new line of casual wear Nike Sportswear line, has come out in defense of Victor Valdes, who was criticized yesterday by Maradona, who called it "a bad goalkeeper." Azulgrana midfielder has explained that "respect everyone's opinions, but Valdés is a really good goalie." Thiago went even further with the '1' azulgrana. "It's the perfect goalkeeper for Barça because he plays with his feet, has saved us many times, also in the Champions League is almost unique," he explained.

On the other hand, the Spanish-Brazilian also explained that Barça will not pull League. "Madrid is playing very well, but Barça is the team to beat," he said. "La Liga is difficult. We can not look beyond the one game. Looking ahead, it will function," said Thiago. (via MD)
