Victor Valdes Is Charged €100 Every Time He Gives Away His Standard Liege Kit

Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes finally escaped Old Trafford in January when he joined Belgian side Standard Liege on loan.

The former Barcelona stopper was banished from the United first team after having a falling out with manager Louis van Gaal, leading him to seek opportunities elsewhere.

Liege stepped up and provided Valdes with a way out, but it seems his situation in the Belgian Pro League may not be as ideal as it first appeared.

For according to the Sun's Nick Rostron-Pike, every time the Spanish keeper gives away his kit to fans or opposition players, he has to fork out €100 to replace it.

That's because Liege only receive a limited supply of kit each season and refuse to cover the cost of any more.

Thus resulting in a situation more akin to Sunday league, whereby Valdes has to pay for his own kit.

It's a bit different to life in the Premier League...
