Praised in his Watford and Aston Villa days and alternatively lamented for his diving nature ever since joining Manchester United, at times we forget that Ashley Young is actually a rather talented footballer.
Still incredibly direct in his playing style and always capable of taking on opposition full backs, Young commits defenders while often forcing fouls, sometimes merited and other times not.
Unlucky not to have received a recall into the England squad, such has been his renaissance under Louis van Gaal after an ordinary spell under David Moyes, Young was fancied as one of the players van Gaal would immediatley dispose of when he arrived but that hasn’t proved to have been the case.
Young deserves a lot of credit for digging in and fighting for his United career and lets face it, he even managed to keep Angel Di Maria on the bench in the latter part of last season!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
