Cape  Town - Former Barcelona goalkeeper and current Manchester United number two, Victor Valdes has picks his 5-a-side football team.

Asked by the ManUtd.com website to choose team, Valdes said: "Ah, I feel a special love for Juan Mata and Ander Herrera. And also Andreas Pereira. One more? Wayne Rooney – it is a good team I think!"

Under Louis van Gaal, there have been a number of Spanish-speaking players join the club, something which Valdes says has helped him settle in Manchester.

"It’s a friendly group and an easy group for enabling you to adapt when you are here and your English is maybe not so good! So it’s great to be next to Mata and Herrera in the changing room." said Valdes.

Valdes also revealed that no current teammate would be up for the prize of "Best goal he's seen in training". That award would be a decision between Lionel Messi or Ronaldinho.

Valdes explains: "Maybe one of Lionel Messi’s or Ronaldinho’s. I don’t know but it would be one of many from them."

Valdes is yet to make his debut for the club after joining Manchester United on a free transfer in January 15 after being released by Barcelona at the end of the 2013/14 season.
