Antonio Valencia has hit out at Manchester United manager David Moyes for not giving him enough chances this season.
The Ecuadorian wide-man has made just 18 starts this term, and has sometimes been shifted from his natural attacking role to a full-back position.
Valencia has long been a key man at Old Trafford since arriving from Wigan, but despite starring in Premier League and cup successes, Moyes appears not to value him as highly as his predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson.
Although he has been enjoying a run in the first-team recently, the 28-year-old believes that he has not been given a fair crack this term:
“I would like to have more minutes. I would like to have a more important role here. In fact, I would have liked to have more importance inside the team.” He told the Sunday People.
“But I have not been given the chance. I hope next season will be better for me as well as for Man United.”
Although Valencia stopped short of suggesting that he may leave the club, with a summer of upheaval at United expected there is the possibility that the pacey South American could head for pastures new.
