Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that club skipper Antonio Valencia will be given a proper sendoff during the Premier League clash with Cardiff City.

Solskjaer made this known during his pre-match press conference on Friday morning ahead of the game billed for Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Cardiff City game is the last league match of the season for Manchester United in what has been a disappointing season for the Red Devils.

The home clash with Welsh side Cardiff City won’t have much bearing to the Manchester United season with only fifth place to fight for with rivals Arsenal.

The Red Devils have already dropped out of contention for Champions League football next season in addition to the fact that they will end the season without any trophy.

Manchester United will be able to concentrate on giving their skipper a befitting sendoff against the Bluebirds.

Antonio Valencia has not been able to stay fit for Manchester United this season and his contract expires this summer.

The 33-year-old won’t be offered a new deal thus bringing an end to his 10-year stay at the Theatre of Dreams.

Antonio Valencia joined the Red Devils from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2009 while legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge of the team.
