Antonio Valencia marked his return to competitive action with a goal in Ecuador’s 2-0 win over Peru during the early hours of Friday morning.
The Red Devils captain started for the first time since October, and speaking after the friendly, Valencia suggested that his recent absence from the United squad was a tactical decision, rather than injury-related. "The relationship with Mourinho has always been a good one," he told Area Deportiva radio. "The player who has been in my place [Ashley Young] has been playing well. You have to respect the decision." However, this contradicts Mourinho’s comments from earlier this month which suggested Valencia was unavailable for selection. "I watched something funny in his Instagram where he says 'work, work, work' in the gym," he said. "He should say 'work, work, work’ alone because I am injured, and I cannot train with the team." Jose criticised Valencia’s lack of fitness at the start of the campaign after he limped off after just 7 minutes in a pre-season friendly against San Jose because of a calf problem. Nov 16 - 10:42 AM
