Young: In His Own Words
"I'm excited. To get the opportunity to come and play for one of the biggest clubs in the world was one I couldn't turn down, to play with such great players and hopefully become part of history in winning the 20th title.
"As soon as I got the call, I just wanted to get things sorted."
Young: In The Words Of Others
"I see a lot of games in Europe, I watch a lot of football, and you see a lot of players in the game who are very functional. Some are decent, some are more than decent and some are very, very good. And then you have the players
who are absolutely exceptional. And Ashley Young is absolutely exceptional."
"I don't think Ashley could be replaced, to be honest with you. His all-round work ethic was absolutely unbelievable. He must have run twice as much as most people on the pitch. If we can get somebody here half as good as him, then he would still be a great player."
