Valencia return 'big boost' for Man U's Premier League title bid: Ferguson

March 29, 2011 - London

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that his side is well placed to win the Premier League title now that winger Antonio Valencia is back from injury.

The 25-year-old has returned for United's last three matches after suffering a serious ankle injury in September.

"Antonio has showed in the parts of the games he's played so far why we've missed him. He is a fantastic footballer. He came on at the right time against Marseille because Nani was starting to wilt a bit after his injury," the Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.

"His ability to get to the dead ball line is a big advantage to us and his football brain was there for all to see when he made Javier Hernandez's second goal against Marseille. His pass to Ryan Giggs was fantastic. It is a big plus point. Having both Antonio and Nani is a big boost for us," he added.
