Valverde is untouchable : the team does not lose when the Uruguayan is in the starting line-up.
I do not like exaggeration, but it seems that we are witnessing a little bird converting to be one of Real Madrid’s eagles. Fede Valverde is an example of dedication to work and an example for every young player inside the club at the moment. He is an example of a pure madridista, his heart is white and it beats with ‘ hala madrid ‘.
In the Camp Nou we saw a great version of Real Madrid and in the middle of the field the youngest player to start in the Camp Nou was glistening. Valverde played against Barcelona as if he plays there every day. He shot, won possession and the accuracy of his passes was 92.5%.
That was not the first time that Valverde shine in, because he is already an untouchable player for the new Real Madrid, as the team does not lose when the Uruguayan player starts the game. During the 12 games he started this season (9 in the League and 3 in the Champions League) the team got 28 from 36 possible points (won 8 matches and tied on four occasions).
Also, when Fede starts, the team receives few goals. During the 12 games in which Valverde started, the team received only 5 goals and scored 29 goals (8 Clean sheets). He knows how and when to defend and attack.
Valverde’s value also appears in the evolution of the performance of the remaining midfielders at Real Madrid, as he pumped blood and restored the competition for the trio (Casemiro, Kroos and Modric) and also made the club rethink about the idea of signing Pogba who obviously would not wear the white shirt.
Valverde wants to end his career at Real Madrid and he is already on the road of doing that after winning the confidence of the fans and after he renewed his contract with Real Madrid until 2025 with a high release clause, according to the ABC. The most important thing is the continuity then the development.
