Photo: Manchester United midfielder Antonio Valencia 'thankful' for great six-year Red Devils career
Antonio Valencia has reflected on six “great” years at Manchester United after posing with his team-mates for their 2014/15 official club photo.
Valencia had been linked with a possible move away from United under former United manager David Moyes after starting just 20 games in the Premier League last season.
However, the Ecuador international has been a regular fixture under new manager Louis van Gaal, being deployed in a right wing-back role in the Dutch coach’s side.
Valencia has scored 21 goals in 192 appearances in all competitions for United since moving to Old Trafford in a £16m deal from Wigan Athletic in 2009.
And the 29-year-old South American is clearly grateful for his decorated career at United after taking to Instagram to post the team photo with his club mates.
“6 years at this great team thank God for making this dream a reality,” Valencia posted on Instagram.
The former Latics midfielder joined his United team-mates for dinner on Tuesday night as the Red Devils opted against watching rivals Arsenal and Liverpool play in the Champions League.
