Man Utd winger Valencia: AC Milan biggest games of career

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia says the Champions League games against AC Milan will be the biggest of his career.

The Ecuadorian winger has been one of United's star performers this season and he's desperate to play his part in helping the Reds overcome Milan and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

"They will be the biggest games I've played in club football," Valencia told Inside United.

"The Champions League is a huge competition and Milan are one of the biggest clubs around.

"They've won so much in their history and they've won the Champions League [and European Cup] a lot, and it will be a big test for us.

"Every game is important, but the lads are definitely looking forward to both matches."

The last 16 tie against Leonardo's side falls during a particularly busy month for the Reds with vital league fixtures and a cup final at Wembley to tackle.

"We've got some really big games coming up, but these are the matches you want to be playing in," insisted the 24-year-old.

"We're ready and focused for a long run of big games with high stakes."
