Ashley Young put aside his boyhood love of Arsenal and his hero worship of Ian Wright in order to join Manchester United.
Speaking on the matter, Young said:
‘Ian Wright was my hero.
‘But even then, if you asked most kids which team they would like to play for, quite a lot would say Manchester United.
‘People judge me differently because I am at the biggest club in the world.
‘I could tell the difference as soon as I got there.
‘I wanted to go a club where I could win titles and medals and play in the biggest competitions. I have a chance to do that now.’
