Young had no nerves

Ashley Young has stressed he had no nerves about pulling on the United shirt for the first time.

The summer signing from Aston Villa made an encouraging start to his Reds career and earned praise afterwards from manager Sir Alex Ferguson for his crossing ability.

After playing his part in the 4-1 success against New England Revolution, the England international was pleased to begin learning how to get on his team-mates' wavelength.

"No, there weren't any nerves," he told MUTV. "I've gone into the game as I normally do, playing the normal same way. I've done that again tonight. I wasn't nervous at all.

"It's a pre-season game and about fitness and I'll build on this. Of course, it's always a nice feeling putting on a Manchester United shirt."

Young is looking forward to more game-time on the tour as the squad heads across to Seattle.

"It felt good," he enthused. "I couldn't wait to get out there and make my debut.
