Puyol confident Valdes will bounce back from Barcelona sacking

Carles Puyol is confident Victor Valdes will bounce back from his sacking by Barcelona.

Valdes, Puyol's former teammate, was relieved of his duties as Juvenil A coach following disagreements with the club, yet Puyol did not shed much light on the decision.

"Victor as a coach still does not have much experience," former Barca captain Puyol explained.

"Last season he did very well. In the world of football, he has a lot of knowledge to teach children.

"I don't know the reasons for his departure, and I'm not inside the club, but I'm sure he'll be a great coach [in the future] and will help develop some great footballers.

"Youth football is not easy, you have to focus on the training of the players and not so much on the results."
