Víctor Valdés i Arribas is a Spanish football goalkeeper who currently plays for FC Barcelona in La Liga. He is considered as one of the best goalkeepers in Barcelona's history, having won a total of 19 titles including five La Liga titles, three Champions League titles, and two Copa del Rey titles. He also has won the Zamora Trophy a record five times. Before joining the full team in 2002–03 season, Valdés played for the youth teams and FC Barcelona B. The initial part of the season saw Valdes play deputy to Argentine international Roberto BonanoIn the 2003–04 season, he emerged as first-choice goalkeeper, and in the 2004–05 season, he played in almost all of Barcelona's matches helping Barcelona to their first league title in six years. In the last round in La Liga Valdes matched a goalkeeping record held by Barcelona legend Andoni Zubizarreta- a record of starting, and never being substituted, in all 38 matches of the La Liga season.
