Manchester United winger Ashley Young Manchester United winger Ashley Young is hopeful that he has finally put his injury woes behind him.

The Red Devils star has been restricted to just 17 Premier League appearances this term, with a succession of injuries hampering his chances of regular playing time.

But, the 27-year-old has finally recovered from his latest set-back and been granted permission to join up with England’s squad for their up-coming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

Young admitted tat it has been a difficult spell in his career and is hopeful that he can now get back to playing regularly for United:

“It’s been very frustrating as a player when you’re injured and seeing the other players training every day,” he is quoted by The Mirror.

“For me, the injuries have been very disappointing and I just wanted to get myself back fit.

“Fingers crossed, from now until the end of the season, I can stay injury-free and get a run in the team.”

Young enjoyed a successful debut season at Old Trafford last term, producing a number of fine displays.

His impressive form allowed him to be a part of Roy Hodgson’s squad for EURO 2012, however the ex-Aston Villa man failed to replicate his club form in Poland and Ukraine.
