Antonio Valencia has left Old Trafford after 10 years at Manchester United.
Valencia’s contract ran out this summer, and the 33-year-old has now signed for Ecuadorian side LDU Quito on a free transfer (BBC).
It’s nice to see our former club captain return to Ecuador, where it all started for the converted winger.
LDU Quito won the Ecuadorian domestic league last season, but are currently struggling in 7th mid-way through the season this time out.
Valencia has had his ups and downs in a red shirt over the years since joining from Wigan in the summer of Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit. He could not live up to expectation of the fabled number 7 shirt when given it for a season, and was eventually converted to a right-back where his performances have gradually dwindled.
But Valencia has been a great servant for the Reds and we wish him all the best at his new club.
