England manager, Fabio Capello, has today sung the praises of Manchester United winger, Ashley Young.
After some great form for England, scoring and assisting goals, Capello has hailed the impact moving from Aston Villa to United has had on his performances.
“The pressure Young has to face in every game is big – so it is normal when he plays for England. It has given him a lot of confidence,” said Capello. “This is what happens when you play with top teams – with Real Madrid, with Barcelona, with Man United or Bayern Munich. What’s changed with Ashley is that now he is playing with a really important team. And he has improved a lot. The confidence you get when you play in a really important team improves you a great deal. He can play as a second striker behind Rooney or on the left. He is technically good, fast and has a good imagination. He scores goals – he can shoot with his left and right.”
