Former Manchester United player Antonio Valencia has signed for a new club just weeks after his exit from Old Trafford.

The ex-Man Utd star has signed for LDU Quito in his native Ecuador after he was released by the Red Devils this summer upon the expiration of his contract with them.

He ended his ten-year association with Manchester United this summer having battled with form and fitness in his final year as a Red Devil player.

Antonio Valencia made just nine appearances for Manchester United in all competitions during the just concluded season.

In total, Antonio Valencia made 339 appearances for Manchester United during his ten-year stay at the Theatre of Dreams.

He joined Manchester United from Wigan Athletic in 2009 as a direct replacement for a young Cristiano Ronaldo who had just sealed a then world-record £80m move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old started his Manchester United career on the wings before he remodeled his game as a right-back.

Antonio Valencia was linked with clubs in China, England and the United States of America before settling for a club in his country.

He won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup title as well as the Europa League title during his stay at Manchester United.
