Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes was grateful to fans for their support on Sunday during victory over Osasuna.

It was not known how the Barca fans would react to Valdes' decision not to renew his contract with the club when his current deal expires at the end of next season.

However, the 31-year-old keeper, who has been at Barca for over two decades, received an ovation from the club's supporters during yesterday's 5-1 win over Osasuna.

Valdes said on his Facebook page: "Special game and we got the three points that we needed to continue fighting for the league. I'm very grateful for the support from the stands...a big hug to all!"
