Manchester United midfielder reveals Old Trafford frustration

Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfielder Antonio Valencia has expressed his frustration at a lack of playing time under David Moyes during what has been a disappointing debut season for the new manager.

The Sunday People reports how the Ecuador international reflects negatively on the 2013/14 campaign, intimating that he could've made a bigger impact had he been selected more regularly by Sir Alex Ferguson's successor.

Valencia has started just 18 Premier League games for the Red Devils this term, spending a considerable part of the season watching on helplessly from the sidelines, as the champions verge on finishing in their lowest ever league position in the modern era.

"I would like to have more minutes," admitted the 28-year-old. "I would like to have a more important role here.

"In fact, I would have liked to have more importance inside the team. But I have not been given the chance."

Moyes has received considerable criticism after enduring a difficult start to life at Old Trafford, and despite the fact they will finish this season without a major trophy, Valencia is hopeful that with a solid summer transfer window the future remains bright at Manchester United.

"I hope next season will be better for me as well as for Man United," he added.
