Ashley Young has talked about his reputation in the dressing room, as well as his appreciation of the fantastic team spirit at the club.
I was looking around and thinking I was in the top six or seven who have been here the longest now. Whereas I used to say I was a youngster, now I can only say that by my name! To be honest, a few of my team-mates have mentioned my name when they talk about characters and jokers and it’s always nice to hear that. You have got to have good team spirit and we have got that here. We always have done. There are people who like to mess about and do different things in the dressing room. There are big characters in the dressing room and everyone gets on with everybody else. The team spirit we have got here is brilliant. When I first came here, I knew a few of the lads from playing with them for England but I didn’t really know what to expect. When you settle in properly at a club, your character starts to come out more and more. With me, I’m always there or thereabouts when there is any mucking about or things going on in the dressing room.
