Manchester United fans poke fun at Salah after Young extends contract

Ashley Young has not always been the most loved player within Manchester United’s squad, but he has put in some impressive performances over the last few seasons.

According to¬†Sky Sports, the Red Devils have extended the 32-year-old’s contract.

The North-West outfit have triggered a clause that adds a year onto Young’s current deal.

This season, the England international has had to switch from his traditional role as a winger to a full-back, and his performances have put him above Luke Shaw in the pecking order.

In total, Young has made 30 appearances so far, and he received widespread praise for his performance against Liverpool two weeks ago.

The experienced player was tasked with keeping Mohamed Salah quiet, and he got the job done to help United earn a 2-1 triumph at Old Trafford.

Salah has been a revelation for the Reds this season, and last weekend he added four more goals to his tally in a 5-0 rout over Watford.

Many United fans chose to remind their rivals of Young’s ability to stifle his opponent once news broke about the contract extension.
