Mata admits shameful situation between Man Utd keeper and LVG

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has described the falling out between Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal and goalkeeper Victor Valdes as a 'shame'.


The former Barcelona shot-stopper has only made two first team appearances for United since joining the club last summer.

The 33-year-old has found himself frozen out of the United dressing room, a situation which Mata describes as disappointing.

"It is a shame what has happened with him as he is a great goalkeeper," Mata told Onda Cero.

"He wants to compete and has proved himself as a goalkeeper. I don't know what happened between him and Van Gaal, that is something only they can say."
