Uganda Cranes’ and Vipers FC loanee Farouk Miya will have his final game alongside Manchester United’s goalkeeper Victor Valdes this weekend.
This follows the club’s new policy to favour the youth players by offering them more time and opportunities to develop better.
The former Barcelona keeper and six-time La Liga winner had originally joined Liege on loan until the end of the season in January after falling out with United manager Louis van Gaal but the contract has been prematurely ended.
“As we decided to give more playing time to the youth players at the end of the season and because they couldn’t be selected for medical reasons, the Spanish goalkeeper and the Greek midfielder have decided in agreement with the club to finish the loan at the end of this week,” Liege said in a statement.
“Standard de Liege wants to thank Ioannis and Victor for everything they did for our club, especially during the successful campaign on the way to the Belgian Cup. We also wish them the best in the rest of their professional career.”
Standard Leige travel to face Kortrijk today and it remains a daunting task for their tactician in terms of selection, after Miya officially opened his goal scoring account in their recent outing.
The former Vipers play maker on a six month loan stint at the Rouches got the equalizer for his team against Royal Excel Mouscron Peruwelz in the Belgium pro league play offs (group A).
