valdes to see out barca contract

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes confirmed on Friday that he will leave the club once his current contract expires in the summer of 2014, explaining that the mental exhaustion caused by the ‘responsibility and pressure’ of his position was behind his reason to eventually move on.

‘Being the goalkeeper at the club is a big weight to carry and I have felt it since I was very young,’ Valdes said. ‘It is a position that carries with it a lot of responsibility, there is a lot of pressure on you, and the demands I put on myself to make sure Barca win is a heavy weight to carry too.’
