Jonathan Gonzales was a very good player when this set was created, definitely superior to Julio Angulo who reached the Libertadores final. Extremely incisive and agile with good contribution to defence although lacked dribbling. This set is very good, possibly he needs even higher speed. His Lpa is a little overdone, but that's about it. And maaaaybe resp? I don't remember why he has this resp, as I remember he was sharp and incisive both in attack and defence, although I'm not sure how are wingers rated in response these days
As your ridiculous comparison to Valencia, Gonzales could have deserved a chance at NT but of course Valencia is there and then Renato Ibarra who is twice the dribbler as Valencia are above him. González use to be just about this, in every regard inferior to Valencia bar agility and acc, but still inferior which is reflected on his set. Valencia is a very intelligent winger above all, his stats don't have to be out world as for it being impossible to compare with other Ecuadorian wingers to be well replicated. There a ton of Ecuadorian wingers that have similar ability and speed on taking on markers as Valencia. There is no reason not to represent that with their sets.
That said I haven't followed his recent performances after he came back to Ecuador nicknamed for a reason as "Speedy Gonzales" by Mexican commentators. It's said that he is not the same player he was, but I doubt there is smth too much different about him, and moreso his coaches decisions that prolly have not been too good
