Valencia joined Manchester United in June 2009 for a fee believed to be in the region of £16 million from Wigan and impressed in his first season at Old Trafford with a number of assists and seven goals for the club.

The right winger began his career with CD El Nacional in his native Ecuador and having made his international debut in 2005 in a 5-2 World Cup qualifying win against Paraguay - marking the occasion by scoring two goals - he was snapped up as a 19-year-old by Spanish side Villarreal for £1.2 million. But after failing to break into the Yellow Submarine first team, he was loaned out to Recreativo Huelva as he adjusted to football in Europe. In 2006, his performances at the World Cup caught the eye and Wigan signed him on loan for the following season.

The Ecuador international spent three years with Wigan Athletic, initially on loan for 18 months before sealing a permanent switch in January 2008. An impressive campaign in 2007-08 saw him linked with moves to Liverpool and United as he became one of the most important players for the Latics. Another consistent season followed and having been tracked by United manager Sir Alex Ferguson for some time, the Red Devils beat off reported competition from Real Madrid to sign the winger.

He made his debut for United in the 2009 Community Shield and netted his first goal against Bolton Wanderers in October 2009, keeping a frustrated Nani out of the team or at least consigned to his unfavoured left-wing position for much of the season thanks to a series of lively performances. He will likely be a key figure once more in United's 2010-11 campaign.

Strengths: Pace in abundance and a direct approach have made the Ecuadorian one of the most-feared wingers in the Premier League. His ability to find Wayne Rooney's head from pinpoint crosses was the source of many a goal for United in the 2009-10 season.

Weaknesses: A tendency to over-complicate things and not deliver the early ball can frustrate, while his defending leaves a little to be desired. Needs to add more goals to his game.

No he doesnt. Actually alot of these Valencia speed suggestions seem to suit Nani better imo.
I definitely agree to a slight raise in body balance though.


I agree with these two comments

The most I would up BB to is 82 - just my 2c

I thought a bit and I think it seemed like the most realistic is

Balance: 82
Top Speed: 88
Acceleration: 88
Dribble Speed: 89



Does anyone think that this is acceptable :P

P10 – Box to Box
S01 – Reaction

To be honest I'm not sure about these. For example he has 86 for Mentality so not sure about P10. Actually he's not such a special player in terms of PES.

I'd maybe give him P06 – Speed Merchant to replicate his direct dribbling style

Actually I thought the same, he sounds like it but after watching some videos he hasn't striked me as a speed merchant, as a player who uses mainly his speed.

I'd agree with Speed Merchant tbh, it fits him well, he's not really what you'd consider as an Mazing Run player or a Trickster, he just likes to use his pace to run to the byline.

Any thoughts on P11 - Cut Back Pass? He does like to get to the byline and fizz the ball into the box, but would you say he does it frequently enough to warrant it?

Cut Back Pass doesn't have to be short pass, just fyi. ;)

That's what he does all the time really. Does he really do anything else beside using his pace to get to the byline and aim for that bald patch ?

If you won't kill me, I will be, with an example, fifth goal against Wigan. Also is 78 a bit high in your eyes?

Yeah I know those goals he score too, it's just that almost every single time he came down that flank he just trigger the Cut Back Pass ability.

I would not. He has great power in his crosses but to be honest it's a little bit straight. I would still keep it in the green value though.
