Guardiola backs Valdes

Juninho scored for Lyon in the Champions League clash and Valdes should probably have saved the shot.

“The goal from Juninho was a tremendous goal,” Guardiola told the Spanish press. “Not even seven goalkeepers could have stopped it.”

Striker Samuel Eto’o added: “Not even Thomas N’Kono, who, for me, is the best goalkeeper ever, could have saved that. Juninho took a superb free-kick and he should be praised for that alone.”
