    Default Fitting reward for Antonio

    Antonio Valencia is the perfect person to fill the iconic no.7 shirt, according to former team-mate Gary Neville.

    The shirt, famously worn by the likes of Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo to name but a few, was unoccupied following Michael Owen's summer departure.

    ManUtd.com announced on Wednesday that Valencia had asked for the shirt and Neville feels he is a fitting addition to the no.7 club.

    "Hes been a fantastic signing for United and thoroughly deserves that no.7 shirt," the former skipper told ManUtd.com.

    "Having played with him for a year or two, I can tell you hes a brilliant footballer, especially to play behind as a right-back. He does the right things at the right time, he works back to help out when you dont have the ball, he delivers good crosses and he can beat a man.

    "Hes a real handful to play against and I was really pleased to see him score a few more goals last season. Thats probably the only area of the game in which youd like to see an improvement.

    "He has a wonderful shot and he stays calm under pressure. Id love to see him chip in with 10 or 15 goals this season - hes more than capable of doing that."
