Ashley Young made a positive contribution to Manchester United’s winning FA Cup game on Monday night after being brought on in the second half.
The winger, who has been used as a wing-back in most of his appearances this season, has praised the team spirit in the squad.
The club has always had great spirit – I’ve seen that since I’ve been here. All the boys in the dressing room are fighting for each other and when you have that off the pitch you take it on to the pitch. It’s one of the qualities we have as a team. It’s a team sport and we always go out and play as a team. We showed that on Monday night from the first minute to the last and in the way we came back into the game and won it. The manager told me to go out there, get on the ball, get crosses into the box and stay wide,” he added. “We wanted to get ourselves back in it as quickly as possible. It was a great team effort – every man throughout the team was fantastic. When you have that team spirit in a game it can help take you through to the next round and that’s what it’s done.
