Antonio Valencia nearing Manchester United return

Antonio Valencia is nearing a return at Manchester United.

He’s been five months out with a freak foot injury.

The United wideman had surgery after he was taken off in last October’s Manchester derby.

He said: “The doctor even told me this kind of injury is weird in a footballer — only cyclists and dancers suffer it.

“I thought I wouldn’t be the same again but now the doctor also told me I should not be worried because it should not happen again.”
