A report in the Daily Mail concerns the injury sustained by right-winger Antonio Valencia. Valencia fractured his ankle and damaged his ankle ligaments in the Champions League encounter against Glasgow Rangers on the 14th September and was ruled out for the rest of the 2010/11 season. However, the newspaper is stating that his recovery has been quicker than expected and that he could make a return as soon as February of 2011, three months earlier than expected.
The newspaper claims that the fact that Valencia stayed at Old Trafford for his rehabilitation has made it possible to have a quicker recovery from the injury which looked extremely bad during the match and shocked all Manchester United fans and Rangers players. Valencia joined Manchester United from Wigan for £16 million in 2009 and has been a key figure in Ferguson’s plans since then, providing important support to the United frontline, particularly Wayne Rooney. Last season, Valencia scored 5 goals and provided 9 assists in the Barclays Premier League. In the 2010/11 season, Valencia has until now played a total of 4 matches in all competitions, scoring one goal. During his career at the club, he has helped United win the 2009/10 Carling Cup and the 2010 Community Shield.
