Zeenews Sports Bureau

Manchester: Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson is positive that winger Antonio Valencia will regain fitness for the away fixture against Tottenham Hotspur next week.

"The availability of Ashley Young and Nani as natural wide players considerably strengthens our attacking options. And I am sure our strikers are pleased to see them," Ferguson was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

"They will be sorry to see Antonio Valencia injured again because he too provides great service from out on his wing, but it`s not a particularly serious injury and he should be back in a week or so," he said.

The Ecuadorian suffered a hamstring strain in the first leg victory against Ajax in the Europa League and was feared to be out for around a month. The injury will however keep him away from the Sunday’s clash against Norwich City.
