Manchester United fans react to Ashley Young’s new contract

Manchester United have announced a one-year contract extension for Ashley Young.

The 33-year-old has been a fine to servant to the Red Devils in his eight years at Old Trafford so far. Having arrived as a pacy winger, he has adapted into a versatile full-back in recent seasons, maintaining a regular starting berth under Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Young has made over 200 appearances for the club since his arrival, and this contract comes as a reward for his consistency in that time.

By now, United should have found a long-term replacement for Young, who is still operating as an auxiliary full-back.

Some may consider this contract extension to be a sign that the Red Devils still haven’t found a way to adequately prepare for life without experienced player.
