“There Was Never Any Doubt Once I Knew United Were Interested”

By on July 22, 2011

Ashley Young claims his move to Old Trafford was never in doubt as soon as he was aware of their interest.

The former Aston Villa winger has just completed a £17million switch from the Midlands claiming it was an easy decision after Manchester United had declared their interest:

“There was never any doubt once I knew United were interested,” Young said. “When one of the biggest clubs in the world comes after you, whether to sign for them or not is a no-brainer.

“I was delighted to hear about their interest. I just wanted to get my signature on the paper.”

The England international also has enough self-belief not to question whether he can be a success.

“I have confidence in my own ability,” he said. “I always said I wanted to play at the highest level. Manchester United is that.

“This move gives me the opportunity to play in the Champions League and go for a 20th title. That just says it all. The history of the club is fantastic and I am delighted to be part of it.”

“I want to be part of a winning team,” Young added. “From the first day I arrived, the manager has been talking about the winning mentality.

“You can see the desire in training. This club is all about winning. The 20th title. The FA Cup. The League Cup. Whatever it is the club is challenging for, I want a medal round my neck.”

It has been muted that Young has been brought in to play a more central role, something that doesn’t faze young:

“I can play left, right, off the front striker or as a main striker,” he said. “It is the manager’s decision, not mine. I just have to concentrate on my own game and wherever I am picked, do myself justice.

“The manager bought me for a reason, to get assists and goals and work hard for the team. If I can do that every time I am selected, my job is done.”
