Valencia signs new contract with Man United

2011-08-01 13:12

London – Ecuadorian winger Antonio Valencia has signed a new four-year contract with English champions Manchester United to keep him at Old Trafford until 2015, the Premier League club said today.
 
The 25-year-old has made a big impact since joining from Wigan Athletic in 2009, although he was sidelined for much of last season with a broken ankle.

“Antonio has made a fantastic contribution since his arrival. His speed, crossing ability and versatility have been a big asset for us,” manager Alex Ferguson told United’s website, Manutd.com.

“He has a quiet, unassuming way of going about his business, which is underlined by great strength of character – as his recovery from such a bad injury last season proves.”

Valencia has made 69 appearances for United, scoring 10 goals.
