Man Utd fullback Valencia seeks end to controversy: I'm single!

Manchester United fullback Antonio Valencia has taken to Instagram to insist his status is 'single'.

The Daily Mail says Valencia, 31, who has regularly taken to social media to declare his love for long-term partner Zoila Meneses, previously referred to as his wife, allegedly flew 23-year-old Norwegian Sophie Vagsaeter to England for the Manchester Derby on September 10.

Valencia, however, posted to Instagram: "In relation to recent news concerning my personal life, it is important to clarify that my current civil status is single.

"Over the past months I have not had any formal relationships.

"I am sorry if recent personal events have generated confusion or distress. I kindly request the media not to interfere in our personal and family life.

"As usual, my efforts are focused on my professional career and on my daughter."
