Sir Alex Ferguson has sung the praises of Antonio Valencia who was arguably our best player on the pitch in the 5-0 win over Wolves.
“He could be very important,” said Ferguson. “His form before he got the injury was outstanding. Now he is back we hope he stays back fit. He is such an honest, hardworking player. You get two sides to Antonio. He is prepared to work really hard. He can tackle, he can run, but he can also beat a man. He has got everything really.”
Only David Silva (12) has more assists than Valencia (11) this season, although he has started ten more games than Valencia has.
