Ashley Young used his lightning pace to ease Aston Villa through their Intertoto Cup encounter with Odense - but it was the speed with which he arrived after Wilfred Bouma got injured that he found hardest to cope with.

Young was first on the scene after Bouma went down holding his right leg after a clash with Odense´s Senegal-born striker Baye Djiby Faye. And given Bouma´s right ankle was bending the wrong way, it is little wonder Young wheeled away with his head in his hands, scarcely able to believe what he had just witnessed.

"It was sad to see him get injured like that," said the England international.
