Young: I was right to snub Reds

Aston Villa defender Luke Young believes he was right to snub a transfer to Liverpool this summer.[LNB] The versatile full-back was wanted by Anfield boss Roy Hodgson, but he opted against a move and has gone on to play in all of Villa's Premier League games so far this season.[LNB]Liverpool instead signed Paul Konchesky, but the former Fulham player has not been able to help his new club in a torrid period both on an off the field as they sit in the relegation zone.[LNB]In contrast, Villa occupy eighth position in the table and Young is glad that he has been playing a regular role in his club's positive start to the campaign.[LNB]"I just felt that I perhaps had more of a chance, if I could get my head down and keep going, of getting in the first team at Aston Villa than I did of getting in at Liverpool," he said in the Daily Mirror.[LNB]"At 31, I didn't really want to go anywhere and, on matchday, feel I was there as a back-up.[LNB]"I pretty much knew that with Glen Johnson the England No.1 right-back at Anfield, I'd be watching in the Premier League and maybe playing in Europe.[LNB]"I had the feeling the offer was as kind of a back-up for left-back and right-back."
