Ashley Young Biography
A gifted winger currently playing for Manchester United.
Usually deployed on the left flank, where he is able to best deploy his pace, trickery, crossing prowess and ability to cut inside and shoot from distance, he is also able to play on the other wing or in a more central role just off the striker.
Ashley started his career with his local club Watford, breaking into the first team at Vicarage Road in 2003 and playing a huge part in the Hornets’ promotion to the top flight in 2006.
It took just six months in the top flight for Aston Villa to feel compelled to make Ashley their record signing in January 2007, and he enjoyed three and a half productive years at Villa Park before taking another step up by joining United in the summer of 2011.
Ashley was first choice on the left wing for most of his first season at Old Trafford and has firmly established himself as a regular for England, for whom he has now made 26 appearances since his debut in 2007, the most recent against Italy at Euro 2012.
