Man Utd winger Valencia explains ditching No7

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia has explained ditching the No7 shirt for the No25 this season.Valencia insists he doesn't blame the number for last season's form dip.

"There is no negative reason as to why I changed ?it," he told manutd.com.

"I don't want people to think that I wasn't ?doing my job for the team because of any added ?pressure of wearing the no.7 shirt, it was more ?to do with the fact that 25 was the number I had ?when I first came to the club and I played well ?wearing that number. So I thought 'why don't ?I go back to 25?' because I had good times and ?good fortune in that shirt."
