Ashley Young has sung the praises of our latest number 7, Antonio Valencia, after he won the Fans’ and Players’ Player of the Season in 2011-2012.

Young thinks that Valencia, who doesn’t have an agent, has it all and deserves all the praise that comes his way.

“Last season he had everything,” he told Inside United. “He attacks, he defends, he can shoot, he can cross, he can pass… he has it all and that’s why he scooped up everything at the end-of-season awards. It’s why the players voted for him and it’s why the fans voted for him. He’s fantastic to play with. Antonio, like every other player, knows how to look after himself as well – he knows what to eat, what to drink and he works closely with our fitness coaches.”
