Ashley Young ready to make an impact

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Ashley Young says he feels ready to make an impact for the club this season. 

28-year-old Young, who arrived at Old Trafford from Premier League rivals Aston Villa in June 2011, enjoyed an impressive debut campaign with the Red Devils but saw his United career come to a grinding halt last season after a succession of troublesome injury problems. 

But with his fitness issues now seemingly behind him Young, who featured for the first time under David Moyes during the club's insipid goalless draw against title rivals Chelsea on Monday night, insists he is eager for a return to the pitch and has pledged to give his all to the club in the coming months.

"“I feel ready,” he told MUTV. “I didn’t have a full pre-season but I have been trying to get myself fit all summer and when I’m fully fit, when called upon, I will go out there and give 110 per cent.

“I had a stop-start season last year with the injuries I had, which was frustrating. But I was glad to get back out on the pitch and to get some minutes. I felt good out there [against Chelsea] and, fingers crossed, now I won’t have the same injury problems this season.”

Following the clash with Chelsea, Manchester United, who demolished Michael Laudrup's Swansea City 4-1 on the opening day of the new domestic season, face another highly anticipated fixture with a trip to Anfield to face fierce rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
