Former Horta player insists Valdes manages like he's playing FIFA

Barcelona legend, who was sacked after three months from the Barcelona’s youth team, is having a difficult time at Spain’s fourth tier division.

Former Spain goalkeeper,

Victor Valdes

, who took charge of the

Horta

in Spain’s fourth division ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, only took two victories from his seven league matches, which led the manager to convince the club to unexpectedly fire three players this week.

One of those three,

Moreno

who had only arrived from

Sant Andreu

ahead of the current term, criticized the former Barca goalkeeper’s coaching credentials speaking to BTV.

"We were in the gym and, at the end of the session, Victor came in and told us that we weren't in his plans anymore, that we weren't what he was looking for footballing-wise,"

Moreno said.

"[He told us] to pick up our things and leave, that we weren't to train because he wanted to sign other players. Clubs should at least warn you and give you time to react.

"[Valdes has a] lack of humility and [he's] egocentric. He thinks he's playing FIFA, as if we, the players, were playing cards."

stressing the manager's arrogance and disrespectfulness,

Moreno

added:

"We're people before anything else and, with Victor Valdes, I felt treated like a piece of sh*t.

"I make a living off of this and now how am I going to pay everything I have to pay?"

Valdes won six La Liga titles during his playing days at

Barca

and was also a member of

Spain's

2010 World Cup and Euro 2012-winning squads.
