‘His Time Has Come’ ‘Great Servant’ – United Fans On Twitter React To Solskjaer’s Comments On 33 Year Old’s Future

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is unsure whether captain Antonio Valencia will be offered a new contract.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference yesterday, the Norwegian said he is not certain whether a new deal will be agreed between the player and the club:

“At the moment I’m not sure if Man United and Antonio will agree on [a deal for] the next year. He’s not 100 per cent fit, he’s had a fantastic career here at Manchester United and in England. He’s one of the only Premier League winners left in the dressing room.”


Fans on Twitter mostly agree that Valencia’s time at United is coming to an end:

The Ecuadorian international’s current deal ends in the summer and a deadline for the club to trigger their option to extend his contract for a further year expired at 5 pm yesterday.

Valencia has struggled for form and fitness this season. The fullback has made just eight appearances in all competitions.

His only game under Solskjaer was the 2-0 away win against Newcastle at the beginning of January. Since then, the 33-year-old has been sidelined with a knock.

Whether he’ll play for the club again, it remains to be seen. In his ten years at United, Valencia has played 338 times, scoring 25 goals and laying on 62 assists.
