It has been reported that Iker Casillas has urged Victor Valdes to leave Manchester United as soon as he can.
Casillas quit Real Madrid for Porto over the summer and feels for Valdes over his situation at United.
He told El Mundo Deportivo: “I want to send all my support and a lot of encouragement to Victor. This is proof that at times football is ungrateful.
“He deserves to find a solution soon because of the type of player he is.
“Had they told us a year-and-a-half ago that he would be in this situation, no one would have believed it.
“Obviously, no one wishes him that. I know he will come out of this situation because he has a privileged mind and I really hope he comes out of this.
“I’m certain he will succeed because we all get back to enjoying ourselves [after leaving a club].”
