Enner Valencia was chased by police during Ecuador’s 3-0 win over Chile on Thursday while being stretched off in a medical buggy – and Everton fans on Twitter called for his contract to be terminated.
The 26-year-old is reportedly being chased over a dispute involving child maintenance, with the video below showing the bizarre scenes involving Valencia and the police.

Valencia is on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals West Ham and fans urged the club to end his loan stay at the club.
Supporters showed their anger towards the attacker by stating, if reports are true, they don’t want the Ecuador international anywhere near the Goodison Park club.
One fan labelled Valencia an “idiot” for his actions, as many called for his contract to be terminated with immediate effect.
But others did see the funny side by stating Valencia being chased by police on a buggy, is the best headline of the week.
While another fan jokingly likened the Toffees forward to movie character Jason Bourne for his actions against the police.
Here is a selection of messages from Everton supporters on Twitter reacting to the bizarre Valencia incident.
Hopefully #EFC are going through Enner Valencia's loan contract with a fine toothcomb and he can be jettisoned back to West Ham immediately.

Really think Koeman is starting to regret signing Enner Valencia. Can we just end that loan already? #EFC

Valencia has made ten Premier League, Europa League and EFL Cup appearances this season for West Ham and Everton respectively.
He has started just one game for Ronald Koeman’s side this term, but has been a regular substitute for the first team since his August arrival.
The versatile attacker will be expected to be ready for the Merseyside club’s clash at Manchester City, after the international break, if the player is not injured.
