Valencia: Best is yet to come

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia has admitted he is pleased with the start he has made to his Old Trafford career, but has promised there is still a lot more to come.

Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in the summer, the Ecuadorian was given the arduous task of filling the void left by the world’s most expensive player.

The 24-year-old, however, has impressed following his £16 million move from Wigan Athletic and scored his sixth goal of the campaign in the Red Devils’ midweek victory over Wolves.

“I only scored seven times in my three years at Wigan – and that probably included all the training sessions,” he said in the Daily Express.

Valencia admits he has adjusted well to life at Old Trafford but insists he is determined to keep improving as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side go in search of a record-breaking fourth consecutive Premier League title.

“I’m happy with my form but I’m definitely not settling for what I’ve done so far,” he added.

“I want to improve, keep learning and achieve a lot more.

“I think fans will see a lot more from me as we progress through the season.”
