Antonio Valencia praises South American signings

Antonio Valencia praised some of Manchester United’s new signings in an interview with MUTV.

The trio of Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao and Marcos Rojo were mentioned by their fellow South American.

Louis van Gaal’s signings from the £150m spending spree in the summer have settled in at the club and are all enjoying life in Manchester according to Valencia, who said:

“Angel, Rojo and Falcao are terrific: they’ve all settled quickly into the group and I think they’re all really enjoying life here.”

“We’ve got a top bunch of lads with Anderson, Rafael and all the English lads too. We all get along really well – [the feeling] is great but then again it’s always been great here.”

United’s number 25 also claimed that there is still a long way to go if the club want to qualify for the Champions League again, despite them sitting in fourth place.

“It’s very open and quite tight in those top spots. We’re seven points behind second place and then a couple of teams are three or four points below us.”

“We must fight hard in the remaining games to finish as high as possible. It’s a long season and we’ve picked ourselves up of late, so we need to keep the results coming for the fans.

“We’ve got tough games coming up against very good teams and rivals for our position but, if we keep the concentration high, we can achieve our aim of a top-four finish.”
