In a nutshell, we present to you the History of Enner Valencia. This is the story of a footballer who came from a poor family and knows what it means to lack food to eat (when he was little).

As a child, the Ecuadorian helped his father sell cow milk in the streets of San Lorenzo.

Even when he began serious football, Enner lacked the money to rent his accommodation. That made him seek the club’s support to freely help him find a place to lay his head and sleep.

Rather than just having to enjoy his football monies when success arrived, more troubles came for Enner. First, Valencia’s sister, Erci, became a victim of kidnapping by Ecuadorian armed gangs.

The money demands of the Kidnappers were out of this world (1.5 million pounds). Another calamity during his career was Enner’s arrest in Ecuador for allegedly refusing to pay child support.

Despite all these travails, he stood tall and retained his reputation as one of his country’s football saviours.

Enner Valencia Childhood Story:

For Biography starters, he bears the nickname ‘The Superman’ and the full name Enner Remberto Valencia Lastra.

Enner Valencia was born on the 4th day of November 1989 to his Mother, Doña Bolivia Lastra and Father, Remberto Valencia, in Esmeraldas, Ecuador.

The Ecuadorian professional footballer is one among many children born to a blissful marriage between his Mum and Dad.

Now, let’s introduce you to Enner Valencia’s parents – persons who have laboured hard and deserve to enjoy the fruits of their son’s hard work.

Growing-Up:

Valencia liked to kick anything in the form of a ball while he was little. His mother, Doña Bolivia, once revealed with a smile that Enner (unlike her other children) kicked the hardest in her belly while she was pregnant with him.

Alongside his siblings (Erci Valencia Lastra and Ericka Valencia), Enner Valencia did diary farming in San Lorenzo (in his childhood).

As a child, the football Athlete spent a great among of time milking cows in his hometown of Ricaurte.

Because of poverty, poor Enner faced all manner of difficult things to survive life. Early on, his family could only survive by selling milk. Young Enner helped his father to sell cow milk in the streets of San Lorenzo.

Enner Valencia Early Life:

Similar to Taiwo Awoniyi, one of his greatest needs as a child was to have his own soccer ball. Unfortunately, Remberto (Valencia’s Dad, who had many responsibilities) could not afford to buy his son the best soccer ball.

Remberto managed to make for his son a rag ball as a gift. This soccer ball comes from the practical approach of scavenging every last bit of usable cloth and then sewing it into a rag rug (rounded in shape).

After milking cows, young Enner would then go to play soccer with his friends, sometimes using his rag ball.

About a decade later, the boy who once played with a rag ball found himself in his country’s national team. He found himself using the famous 2014 Brazuca ball to score goals at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Enner Valencia Family Background:

While reading this Bio, you may have noticed that he was raised in an agricultural household. Enner Valencia’s parents were once poor and could only afford to live in one of the country’s poorest areas.

The Ricaurte parish, in the San Lorenzo canton of Esmeraldas, is not a place for wealthy families. As I write Enner Valencia’s Bio, his family’s difficulties are a thing of the past, thanks to his football career.

Enner Valencia's family members (nuclear and extended) were once celebrating one of their own.

The Kidnap of Erci:

The 17th day of August 2020 was a difficult moment for Enner Valencia’s parents and family members. Erci, the sister of the former Wesh Ham striker, was kidnapped at their place of residence.

According to Peter Valencia, Enner’s uncle, the armed men (about 15 people) broke into Valencia’s house around 10:00 pm that day.

Understanding their initial demands, they were primarily interested in abducting Enner Valencia’s father, who was not found.

Next, they began a search for other notable family members. In the process of doing that, the armed criminals went on to beat several of Enner Valencia’s nephews.

As they beat his family members, they violently ask for the identity of the head, the footballer’s Dad.

Noticing Enner Valencia’s parents – Remberto Valencia and Bolivia Lastra, wasn’t available, they took Erci (pictured below), who is the sister of the Striker.

Upon kidnapping her, the kidnappers refused to make contact for days. When they finally did, a £1.5m ransom payment was demanded from the Valencia family.

José Mina Quiñones (Enci’s husband) made the initial complaint to the police authorities about the development. Describing the Kidnapping incident, Enner Valencia’s brother-in-law said;

Initially, they took us by force but I managed to escape by throwing myself into a river. They apparently carried my wife into their lead-coloured van-type vehicle and drove towards Esmeraldas.

The man-hunt for the Kidnappers of Antonio Valencia’s Sister:

Following the report, Ecuador’s National Police mounted an extensive search operation for the 28-year-old Erci Valencia.

Observing the authorities were seriously after them; the kidnappers began to move their victims from one part of the forest to another.

Thanks to good intelligence, the Ecuadorian Anti-Kidnapping agents managed to locate and rescue Erci in the jungle of Esmeraldas province.

In total, Valencia’s sister spent ten days with the kidnappers before she was rescued unharmed. Here is a video of the moment she got rescued.

After a thorough investigation, six suspected kidnappers were identified were arrested.

The Kidnappers of Enner Valencia’s sisters include three persons of Colombian nationality which are; Edwin C., Dugelio T., Jose C., and Edwin M.

Also, two persons of Ecuadorian nationality – Juan S., and Washington A. Now, here is a photo of the suspects (whose faces are blurred) at the time the Ecuadorian national police paraded them to the public.

Enner Valencia Family Origin:

First, the Striker identifies himself as a South American and a citizen of Ecuador, meaning he holds Ecuadorian nationality.

Regarding where Enner Valencia’s family comes from, our research points to the town of San Lorenzo. This is an Ecuadorian port town located 12 miles south of the Colombian border and about a four hour’s drive from Ecuador’s capital, Quito.

There are three things you probably don’t know about Enner Valencia’s origin. First, Ecuador is the first country in the world to acknowledge the rights of nature officially.

Secondly, the country is also the first to remove the death penalty from its laws. Last but not least, Ecuador is officially recognized as the World’s largest exporter of the yummy yellow fruit – Banana.

Enner Valencia Ethnicity:

Judging by his looks, you could quickly tell he belonged to an Afro-Ecuadorian stock. Just like Pervis Estupinan, including his namesake, Antonio Valencia, Enner has his family origins in Africa.

Put simply; his ancestors are descendants of the African slaves who were once brought in to Ecuador by the Spanish colonialist.

This explains why the Footballer’s hometown (San Lorenzo) is in the northwestern coastal region of Ecuador. Truth is, the port town of San Lorenzo was once a slave depot.

Enner Valencia Education and Career Buildup:

Approaching the right ages, the Ecuadorian striker enrolled on his studies at schools in San Lorenzo, his hometown. Enner had his nursery, primary and some of his secondary education before football prevented his studies to the university level.

Enner Valencia began playing serious football on his neighbourhood field which is near the Salado estuary. Back then, his first coach, Mauricio Coello, would always have Enner as one of the first names in his team.

While playing inter-neighbourhood competitions, Valencia always ensured he was the Striker with the most goals. Soon, his goal-scoring ability paid dividends, and he (in 2008) was called for trials with Caribe Junior, a local academy.

Enner Valencia Biography – Untold Football Story:

Caribe Junior was not a top team in Ecuadorian football, but one that always pushed young players to bigger teams in the country.

Enner Valencia continued his goal-scoring while with the Caribe Junior’s youth system. Within two years at the academy, his abilities on the ball was already gaining momentum across the country.

In no time, Enner was invited for trials by Club Sport Emelec, one of the country’s most prominent clubs based in the city of Guayaquil. Guayaquil is the birthplace of this fellow Ecuador teammate – Leonardo Campana.

He, in 2008, travelled to Guayaquil for trials with Emelec, which he passed with flying colours. That year, Enner successfully enrolled at the club that boasts of having the likes of Antonio Valencia, the Man United Legend.

In his first weeks with Emelec, Enner suffered from accommodation issues because of a lack of monies. After a few training sessions and matches, it became apparent that Enner Valencia was blessed with a fearsome shot.

Because of that quality, his coach (Gustavo Quinteros) converted him from a Winger to a Striker. The Rising Ecuadorian footballer successfully graduated from Emelec academy in the World Cup year of 2010.

Senior Football Rise:

With the coming of the Argentinian Super-coach, Jorge Sampaoli, he became the first name on Emelec’s first team sheet. Within two years of being a professional footballer, Enner Valencia had turned into one of the country’s most prominent football assets.

A year after he began playing for Ecuador’s national team, foreign football clubs began begging for his signature.

Did you know?… Enner’s goals helped Emelec to grab a title they had waited for 11 years. The goals he scored for Emelec (as observed from the video below) showed early signs that he would soon dominate his country’s football.

Enner Valencia Bio – Road to Fame Story:

The next destination of the Striker’s football journey was with the Pachuca club, in Mexico. Renberto Valencia Solís (Enner Valencia’s Father) remembers that the first week of his son’s stay in Mexico was complex.

He said that many fans of the club constantly threw racist insults at Enner at the time he had a slow start in the team.

However, little by little, Enner began to silence his critics by constantly destroying the rivals’ nets. With these kinds of goals he scored for Pachuca, there came an outpour of rumours about interest for him from Europe.

He scored those goals (as seen in the video below) in 2014. Valencia (who just kept on scoring) waited to make a big career move during the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Enner Valencia Biography – Success Story:

Ecuadorian national team coach Reinaldo Rueda began experimenting with him as a striker after the unfortunate death of Christian Benítez.

Enner Valencia successfully filled in the shoes of the Legend, who died after intense pain in his abdomen. Before the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the new number nine began showing signs he would make headlines at the big tournament.

In the 2014 World Cup, Enner Valencia achieved a meteoric rise. He scored in Ecuador’s opening match against Switzerland. Next, Valencia scored two World Cup goals against Honduras.

Another 2014 World Cup goal came against Bolivia, and this goal cemented his name as one of South America’s heroes of the tournament. Enner continued goals after the 2014 World Cup made him the self-acclaimed god of his country’s football.

Move to Europe:

West Ham United became victorious in the battle to win his signature during the 2014 World Cup. At last, Enner found himself in the Premier League.

The then-24-year-old Striker was part of a Sam Allardyce Hammers side that played alongside Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll.

Two seasons later, Enner Valencia joined an interesting Everton side. With the Toffees, he played alongside Romelu Lukaku, Leighton Baines, Gerard Deulofeu, Ross Barkley, Idrissa Gueye, Tom Davis, Ademola Lookman, etc.

At the start of the 17/18 season, Enner Valencia felt the need to continue his unfinished business with Mexican football. That unfinished business resulted in his 21 goals scored for  Tigres UANL. Next came a big career move to Fenerbahçe, where his goal-scoring form continued, as shown in this video.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup:

At the time of writing Enner Valencia’s Biography, he, alongside these fast-rising national heroes (Michael Estrada, Moise Caiceodo, etc), have just qualified Ecuador for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

It took an unforgettable Ecuador vs Brazil draw and other famous wins for the country to reach Qatar. Valencia, who is the greatest goal scorer in Ecuador’s history, hopes to make another big statement at the tournament (like he did in 2014). The rest, as we say of his biography, is now history.

Sinthyia Pinargote – Enner Valencia Ex-Wife

The 2014 FIFA World Cup star is a divorcee. Research has it that Sinthyia Pinargote is Enner Valencia’s Ex-Wife. Before their divorce, Sinthyia Pinargote and Enner Valencia had a daughter together, whose name is Beira Valencia.

Once upon a time, the former Everton striker was being pursued by police over a dispute regarding alimony payments to his ex-wife.

It happened in October 2016 when a warrant was issued for Enner Valencia’s arrest for unpaid child support. Enner was to be arrested for the alleged non-fulfilment of his duties as a father to his five-year-old daughter, Beira.

The Police found him before a match and were ready to arrest the Striker. Did you know?… a brilliant Valencia wasn’t prepared to surrender to the authorities.

So he decided to put up an act to evade the police. Yes, Enner Valencia faked an injury. In other to escape arrest, he ensured he was carried off the field in this manner, even leaving the stadium in an ambulance.

EndNote:

Enner Valencia was born to his parents – Remberto Valencia (Dad) and Bolivia Lastra ( Mum). The Ecuadorian footballer grew up alongside his siblings – notably among them are Erci Valencia Lastra and Ericka Valencia.

Enner hails from a poor family background. As a child, he helped his Dad sell cow milk in the streets of San Lorenzo, where he grew up.

Regarding his origin, Valencia is a San Lorenzo native. He hails from the Ecuadorian port town and identifies with the Afro-Ecuadorian ethnic group.

As a child, Enner’s love for football saw him kicking anything in the form of a soccer ball. Remberto, his Dad, could only afford to buy his son a rag ball as a gift. When Enner wasn’t selling milk for his Dad, he would be found outside his family home playing football.

The road to becoming a professional began in his neighbourhood field, around the Salado estuary. Mauricio Coello, his first local coach, saw him as the best goal scorer in the soccer team he picked for tournaments. During one of those competitions, football scouts spotted Enner and invited him for trials with Caribe Junior.

After three years with Caribe Junior, he moved to a bigger club, far away from his family home. The Striker began his academy football career (with Emelec).

Valencia lacked the money to secure his accommodation with the club. Because his parents couldn’t afford it, the San Lorenzo native had to find a place to lay his head.

Enner Valencia rose through these challenges and became a successful footballer for his country and the clubs he has played for.
