Valencia surgery successful
United have confirmed that Antonio Valencia's ankle operation was successful.
The Ecuadorian winger was stretchered off during the Reds' Champions League draw with Rangers on Tuesday after dislocating and fracturing his left ankle.
Valencia is likely to be out of action for a while, but remains in good spirits.
"The operation went well," a club spokesperson told ManUtd.com.
"A plate has been inserted to stabilise the fracture but there is obvious significant ligament damage that follows a dislocation and he will be out for a good portion of the season.
"Contrary to recent reports there has been no official contact from the Ecuadorian national team. Antonio is perfectly fine, very positive and very determined."
