Man United's (Red Devil) star, Valencia to undergo arm surgery on saturday

Anthonio Valencia
According to punchng, The Red Devil player Antonio Valencia, will undergo surgery today after fracturing his arm. But he was missing from Jose Mourinho’s squad for Saturday’s league match at home to Burnley, with United confirming his injury via a Twitter feed statement that said: “Antonio Valencia has a fracture in his arm and will have surgery today.”

Valencia, who made himself as a winger before featuring as a right back under successive United managers, Matteo Darmian will be replacing Valencia in the team to play against Burnley.

The 31-year-old Valencia’s absence means he has now joined fellow defenders Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling in being sidelined through injury.

“They were the three players that start almost every match in the Premier League and now we lose all three in the same period,” United manager Mourinho told broadcasters before Saturday’s kick-off at Old Trafford.

“But that’s football and it’s an opportunity for others to play. We trust Darmian and we trust Marcos Rojo to have a positive influence.”
