Man Utd captain Neville hails Valencia impact this term

Manchester United captain Gary Neville is delighted with the form of Antonio Valencia since his arrival this season.

In his column for the Sunday Times of Malta, Neville wrote: "Antonio Valencia, has been fantastic this season, although he's had the benefit of playing in the English league previously with Wigan. He's powerful, strong and quick. He can beat a man, he gets crosses in and he has a fantastic physique. When we have all our players fit we are a very strong squad that can attack in different directions with different players.

"Valencia wasn't known for scoring goals at Wigan, but he has bagged a few for us this year. At United you will always get great opportunities to score if you play in forward positions because we attack a lot. But he is also got himself into those attacking areas and finished well - he has a great shot on him."
