Manchester United fans were clearly furious with Antonio Valencia‘s performance in the Champions League fixture against Valencia.
The Ecuadorian captained his side for the clash but didn’t put in a leader’s performance at all, especially when it was heavily needed.
Antonio started in his usual position in right-back but supporters are quickly getting frustrated by how little he offers.
He simply doesn’t show the confidence one would expect from a former winger and Diogo Dalot must be licking his lips at the prospects of winning the position over.
Time isn’t on Valencia’s side and he could quickly lose his spot given how his form has disintegrated completely.
Valencia getting hammered at RB. If only we had bought a young, energetic, capable fullback who could play in a game like this.

Valencia tearing Valencia to shreds in the opening 15min. He's finished.

HT: #MUFC 0-0 Valencia
Started brightly, nice couple of chances from Rashford, but soon slipped back into the norm. Drab. Slow. Think Valencia has a bet on how few forward passes he can make 🤔 What do you guys think?#UnitedReview is LIVE at 11; https://t.co/ISJ4aZzRYL pic.twitter.com/3FYrWRHZEb

If anyone can give me 1 good reason as to why Antonio Valencia still pulls on a Manchester United shirt, please let it be known. He's bloody terrible. #MUFC

The former Wigan man can’t seem to do anything right as he often fails to deliver a telling cross or beat his man.
In terms of defending his man-marking isn’t great and he’s not making enough of a case to continue being selected.
Given how he’s the captain though, Mourinho may not be keen on dropping him.
The Portuguese manager also wanted to slowly integrate Dalot into the side so that he can adjust well to his new surroundings.
Fans will be keen to see the youngster consistently put on the famous red shirt and have called on Valencia to be moved on.
