The 27-year-old picked up the Player of the Year award at Old Trafford last season but has failed to recreate that form in the current campaign, scoring just once in the Premier League.

The Ecuador international has acknowledged his performances have taken a dip but claims injuries have not helped his cause.

"It's not been quite the season I would have hoped on a personal front," said Valencia, quoted in the Daily Mirror.

"The injuries I've had have held me back a bit. I still get the odd twinge from the last injury I had to my leg and that perhaps affected my progress slightly."

Valencia joined United from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2009 in a deal reported to be worth in the region of £16million.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
