Man United’s Antonio Valencia birthday
August 4th is Antonio Valencia’s birthday.
The Manchester United and Ecuadorian international star has today turned 33.
In a testament to Antonio Valencia’s amazing career, he’ll once again start the Premier League season as a starter for Jose Mourinho.
However Mourinho has begun preparing for life after Valencia.
19-year-old Diogo Dalot has moved to Old Trafford this summer. He’s poised to be the long term replacement in the Man United right-back slot.

I'm assuming it's to support his mate Montero? No other reason for him being there unless he has a word with maguire 👀😂
