Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that winger Antonio Valencia is beginning to settle in nicely at Old Trafford.

The Ecuadorian international, who signed from Wigan Athletic in the summer, broke his scoring duck at the club in the Premier League win over Bolton on the weekend and backed it up with the winner against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage.

Ferguson told reporters that Valencia is now finding his feet and expected him to start stringing more consistent performances together.

The Scottish tactician also said that the Ecuador international has been the plus point for Mnachester United the last two weeks.

Ferguson also said that Valencia is settling into the club and that his confidence is stronger and he has tremendous assets for a wee player such as strength, balance, feet and a good crosser of the ball.

Ferguson however said that the area Valencia has not shown is his goalscoring ability.

Ferguson also said that when Manchester United signed Valencia, it was a challenge to Valencia to progress as a footballer.

The manager also said that Valencia has now scored two goals in two games and that will be a big help to him.
