Moment Everton star Enner Valencia ‘fakes injury to flee police’ amid row over unpaid child maintenance
This is the incredible moment Enner Valencia appeared to fake an injury to flee police amid a row over unpaid child maintenance.
The Everton loanee was chased out of the stadium by officers during Ecuador’s 3-0 win over Chile on Thursday night.
The striker, on loan from West Ham, was in his homeland for the World Cup qualifier when he was met by police and lawyers following a training session on Wednesday.
Valencia was faced by authorities holding a judicial order, with lawyers representing the mother of his five-year-old daughter seeking an alleged £13,350 in maintenance.
The 26-year-old was greeted at the Atahualpa stadium in Quito on Wednesday, where Ecuador were training ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Chile.
The lawyers, however, failed to have the player detained.
But Valencia pulled up late on, seemingly injured, and was taken off on a stretcher before being pulled onto a golf cart.
