Man Utd fans baffled by club legend Antonio Valencia’s new look

Manchester United hero Antonio Valencia left fans baffled after showing off his new look on Instagram.

The Ecuadorian spent 10 seasons at Old Trafford, winning two Premier League titles and a Europa League.

But he left the Red Devils last season, heading back to Ecuador with L.D.U. Quito.

Valencia has kept fans up-to-date with life in South American on Instagram.

And the 34-year-old shared a bizarre style change with fans earlier today – by shaving all his hair off.

United’s former defender smiles widely for the camera while showing off his head, which glows in the sunlight.

It came as a coronavirus update, with the South American leagues suspended to combat the disease.

This post has been liked more than 90,000 times since it was published on Instagram on Wednesday night.

But the United faithful were left baffled at their club legend’s new look.

“What the f***,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “The man’s gone skinhead.”

While a third suggested he had copied another former team-mate.

“Ashley Young, is that you,” they said.

And a fourth added: “It’s Ashley Young!”

Rio Ferdinand even got involved, saying: “WTF bro?!”

With another fan simply writing: “Wow.”

The Ecuadorian is in quarantine to combat the breakout of coronavirus which has caused chaos in the sporting world.

But his former club have pledged over £1m to matchday staff who have been left out of pocket, with action suspended until April 30.

A club statement said: "Manchester United has confirmed that it will pay all its loyal matchday and non-matchday casual workers should Premier League games be cancelled or played behind closed doors for the remainder of this season.

"This goodwill gesture reflects the club's desire to reduce the financial uncertainty facing its casual workforce, and is in recognition of the crucial role they play in delivering services to supporters.

"All Premier League games are currently suspended until at least April 30. Discussions are ongoing with the Premier League about what will happen to games after that date, including the four remaining games scheduled to be played at Old Trafford this season.

"The goodwill payment will be made to all matchday and non-matchday casual workers who have worked for the club in the past three months."
