One of the most famous and successful Spanish soccer goalkeepers Victor Valdés Arribas had a fancy life full of victories and achievements. Known as one of the most titled goalkeepers he won 3 Champions Leagues, 6 La Ligas, and many other tournaments. But now his dream-life has turned into a nightmare. Betrayed by his own club, once a star player in the Spanish league, he is now alone and isolated.

Yet, the position of Louis van Gaal is a radical one. But how did a star football player become an object of such nasty rumors?
