Young: I made the right choice

Published Add your comment

Ashley Young insists he has no regrets about joining Manchester United, despite having the opportunity to sign for Manchester City.

The 26-year-old completed his £17 million move from Villa Park to Old Trafford in June, and has scored three times in 16 appearances for the Red Devils.

Young could have, however, sealed a switch to the Etihad Stadium during the summer to join Roberto Mancini's pace-setting City.

But, the England winger believes he made the right choice to sign for United, and says any other player would have done the same.

"That's true," he told the Daily Mirror when asked about City's interest. "But as soon as I heard about Manchester United there was no other club for me.

"It's Manchester United. They are the biggest club in the world, and I think if you ask anyone who they want to play for the majority will say: 'Man United.'

"The fan base, the team and what they have won in the past is [all] amazing.

"I want to be part of that - and be able to bring the title back to United again and make history with a 20th.

"I feel I have settled straight away into the team, which for a club the size of Manchester United isn't easy.

"But I believe in my ability and feel it was easy to fit in, especially as I know some of the boys and the team spirit they have."
