Antonio Valencia has dedicated Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea to those Ecuadorians who suffered following an earthquake in his homeland a year earlier.

Posting on Instagram, he said: “1 year of the earthquake in Ecuador, I want to dedicate today’s result to the people of my country.”

On April 16, 2016, a huge quake struck the western coast of the right-back’s homeland, leaving over 660 dead and nearly 17,000 injured.

It was the country’s worst natural disaster since 1949 and left many thousands without homes and an estimated $3 billion of damage was done.
