New Manchester United signing Ashley Young says he couldn’t be happier to be part of the club’s pre-season tour of the USA, with the winger playing for the first time in a Red Devils shirt.

Young joined United in June, and made his debut for the club in a 4-1 win over New England Revolution last week.

And the former Aston Villa star says the pre-season matches have been a great chance to build some chemistry with his new teammates.


Young said: “It gives you an even better feeling of the boys that have made me feel so welcome."

And the winger is still counting his lucky stars to be a part of one of the biggest clubs in Europe, who will no doubt be favourites for the Barclays Premier League title next season.

“[This is a] fantastic opportunity for me to be able to come play for one of the biggest clubs in the world,” he continued.

“Usually for me, preseason is not one that I want to go back into training because of all the hard work.

"Getting back into preseason is a little tough. But joining a new club and having a new challenge, I just wanted to get back into preseason.”

Young has yet to meet United’s star forward Javier Hernandez, and the England international says he can’t wait to play beside a player with such an intimidating reputation throughout the league.

“Speaking to players that have played against him — obviously the centre backs have played against him — they were saying how quick he was, his movement, he had that all-around game,” Young added.
