Nemanja Vidic has praised Antonio Valencia following the two winning goals he has scored in our past two matches.

Vidic reckons the pressure of filling Cristiano Ronaldo’s boots had a negative effect on our winger but now we can expect to see more and more great things from Valencia.

“At the beginning of the season, Antonio had some difficulties because he was bought to replace Cristiano Ronaldo,” said Vidic. “The media paid special attention and were watching his every move, and the pressure paralysed him a little. He is a real artist, gradually gaining confidence and playing better and better with each match. Scoring will help him even more.”
