Ashley Young played his first game for Manchester United last night in our 4-1 win over New England Revolution at the start of our US Tour.

Wayne Rooney has claimed that our new player has settled in well and will help bring more success to the club in the future.

“Ashley has settled in well,” said Rooney. “Everyone knows what Ashley is capable of. He put some excellent crosses in tonight and we are looking forward to playing a few more games with him. We have an exciting young team now. Hopefully we can bring more success to the club.”

Last night’s game stood at 0-0 at half time, before Federico Macheda, Michael Owen and Park Ji-Sung scored four goals after Rooney was substituted. Rooney welcomes this competition for places though, as it will only improve the performances of our strikers.

“Competition is good,” he said. “It keeps everyone on their toes. It is exciting to have so many strikers. It means everyone will have to be on top of their game to keep their place in the team.”
