Valencia has become a vital member of Mourinho’s squad, starting 23 matches in all competitions this campaign while earning the reputation as one of the finest right-backs around.
He was voted United’s Player of the Month for November by the fans and Mourinho’s arrival at the club has provided him with the platform to build on his career and kickstart his impressive displays in his eighth season as a United player.
Hopes are Valencia can maintain his impressive form as he’s already pushed Matteo Darmian out of his natural position due to his fine form and has been performing wonders all campaign for United.
