Any flyer or striker who meets Luis Antonio Valencia has to be stronger and faster than him and neither is easy. Defender Chris Smalling, who voted for the Ecuadorian as Manchester United’s top player of the year, assured this.
The announcement was made at the awards ceremony at Old Trafford yesterday. ‘Toño’, 31, wore a black suit and a white shirt.
The player already won this trophy in the 2009-2010 season, precisely when he arrived at the ‘Red Devils’ from Wigan, earning about $ 25 million for the transfer of the player who then played as a right-hander.
Since then he has remained as an elite player, despite having suffered serious injuries, including an ankle fracture, which took him six months away from the courts in 2010 and made him fear for his future (I).
