Valdes arrest claims are false

Reports that Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes was arrested after punching referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa are false.

The story emerged this afternoon from a Spanish journalist working for Cadena SER – but it has now emerged that the Twitter account is a fake.

The Blaugrana shot-stopper was said to have hit the official inside the changing rooms at Santiago Bernabeu, before being taken away by police.
