Joyce reveals Valdes' inspirational team-talk

After making his first appearance in a Manchester United shirt on Monday, Victor Valdes is already having a big impact at Old Trafford.

Victor Valdes is already making his mark at Manchester United after it was revealed the goalkeeper made a stirring pre-match presentation to the Under-21 side.

The Spaniard arrived at Old Trafford earlier this month, but is yet to make a first-team appearance as compatriot David de Gea continues to impress.

Valdes had his first outing for the Under-21s on Monday, and coach Warren Joyce has spoken of how the keeper showed his team-mates a video beforehand.

The video told the story of veteran American athlete Dick Hoyt, who has pushed his quadriplegic son Rick in adapted wheelchairs while contesting in gruelling endurance events.

"The lads are in the room listening to this," said Joyce. "It was unbelievable.

"I was going to do something but Victor said '[Pep] Guardiola used to do this'.

"He's a very humble guy and a model professional."
