Ashley Young has again reaffirmed his happiness at being a Manchester United player, claiming there were no doubts in his mind over what to do when he heard our club were interested.
“I am just delighted to be here and get myself on the pitch,” said Young. “No disrespect for the Villa boys but as soon as I heard of Manchester United’s interest, I just wanted to get the deal done and start training. I can play left, right, off the front striker or as a main striker, so I just have to concentrate on my own game and wherever I am picked, do myself justice. The manager bought me for a reason, to get assists and goals and work hard for the team. If I can do that every time I am selected, my job is done.”
