He may not be the most popular player among Reds but you’ve got to hand it to Ashley Young’s desire when it comes to winning trophies at United.
Young told the Star:
R20;We all have that hunger and desire to succeed and look back at the end of the season and say we won this trophy and that trophy.
‘It can be looked upon as being greedy but we are greedy because we want to win all four trophies this season.
‘People can say we are the ‘Greedy Bunch’ and, in the hunt for honours, that is correct because it’s precisely what we are.”
‘The new manager came in at the start of the season and told us that he wanted to win all of the four competitions we are in.
‘He has the same winning mentality as every one of our players has and the fact is that we want to win every single competition.
‘We don’t just want to take part in them all – we definitely want to go out there and win the lot. We want four trophies at the end of the season.’
Fans may criticise Young’s methods to win United games- he was even booed by small sections of the crowd against Leverkusen following ‘diving-gate’ but if the Reds lift anywhere near the silverware the winger covets then maybe all will be forgiven.
