    Chill the f**k down, guys.
    I'm not saying he deserves this, I'm just saying it's funny and ironic that he desperately wanted to leave the club and he got seriously injured. I appreciate everything he gave for the club, but that doesn't mean that I have to like him. He's arrogant, and i'll never forget how he threatened to leave Barça in 2009 (or 2010?) just to get an upgrade in his salary. now they're talking about renewing his contract for one more year. it's very considerate of Barça to think about it, but I don't want anybody that don't want to be here, especially due to the fact that we already have a goalkeeper for the next season. like I said, Ter-Stegen shouldn't pay the price for Valdes' injury.

    Sadly for you, I've been a Barça fan for 23 years. I may have an unpopular opinions, but what do you know? it's a forum. I can say whatever the hell I think. deal with it.

    Aww man, this truly sucks. Why does it have to end this way?

    Hoping Victor a speedy recovery. Knee injuries are one of the worst. Also, the damn knee may never be same if not done right.

    Yep. It is very dangerous to land on just one foot (that means the whole body weight is distributed to just one of the knee's ligaments), especially if the leg is not flexed when it touches the ground. And Valdes landed on one foot from a high point, having jumped to catch the ball. He really didn't have any chance to avoid the injury. If anything, he was lukcy that it was only the ACL that got teared. It could have been even worse.

    The meniscus could have been affected as well as other ligaments of the knee.

    Very, very unfortunate for both Barca and Victor. I hope he recovers fast and completely to be in shape to play. He's got a lot of mileage on his tires, regardless of whether he stays with Barca or signs with another club. Good luck Victor!

    I'm sure his wages would be lowered, if that was the case. But it seems Monaco will honour the contract.

    He can leave cause his contract is up.

    But we need him to stay for another season, which he might well just do.
