Valencia on his topsy turvy season


Britain West Ham ValenciaEnner Valencia has admitted life has not been straightforward in his first West Ham season.

Speaking to the official site Enner said: “Looking back on my first season at West Ham, I think it has been a year of ups and downs.

“I had a few injuries at the beginning, and the Premier League is a very strong, dynamic league. I’ve had to adapt, which has been hard, but I think I’ve done well in the process.”

Injury has caused problems and he is now only just beginning to find his fitness again as the end of season approaches.

However he said: “I have learned a lot about the Premier League, the teams that play well, the teams that play strong and different kinds of football. I’ve adapted and I think next season will be better than this one.”

    I agree I think Valencia is going to be special next year. He has taken this season to find his feet but he has undoubted talent and I reckon he will prove to be worth his £11m fee.

      I hope you are right. He has got fantastic pace and a wonderful shot, he just needs to learn to be a better team player as he sometimes makes the wrong descision. tries to take someone on instead of a pass and go, but hopefully that will come.

    His season was going great until he found his self playing second fiddle to sick note,
    Then the crxp coming from Cheski,
    Then having to play up top by his self or out of position,
    Yes you will have a cracker next year when the ship has a new leader,
