Ashley Young criticized by Fans most

Apart from one good season at Manchester United, Ashley Young has forever been criticised even by some of his own supporters.

The former Aston Villa midfielder was one of the strange signings made by Sir Alex Ferguson, as he was not the top quality player United should have been looking at. Instead, Young has managed to force himself into the first-team reckoning against all the odds. After United signed wingers like Angel di Maria, it was thought to be the death kneel forYoung at United. This has not been the case, as manager Louis Van Gaal has been able to find a unique solution to accommodate the England international in the team.

Young has been playing as one of the wing backs in the 3-5-2 formation, which would have been unthinkable a few years ago. The 29-year-old struggled to adapt with this change in position during the early part of the campaign. After repeated experience of playing in a position where a lot is demanded from a player in both defence and attack,Young is starting to excel. Luke Shaw was signed as the club’s new left back after the departure of Patrice Evra, but it seems thatYoung may do the job instead. The club’s legend Clayton Blackmore says that Young has been defending better than Evra. Read more »
