Manchester United player Ashley Young has admitted that he still sees himself as a winger despite largely featuring as a full-back so far this season, according to ESPN.
The 32-year-old has featured in 27 games so far this season which is just six less than the most he has ever had in his career at the club, which came in the 2011-12 season.
He has put in a host of superb performances for United, which has not only kept out Luke Shaw but earned him a place back in the England squad with a place at the World Cup not out of the question.
Young put in another brilliant performance just a couple of days ago against Liverpool as he kept Mohamed Salah incredibly quiet in a man of the match performance, which earned him plenty of praise.
He spoke about his versatility in a recent interview:
I don’t know [my best position]. I’m not sure anymore. I still see myself as a winger because I’ve played there for so long. I’ve played as a No. 10 as well. There are so many positions and I think it’s only goalkeeper and centre-half that I haven’t played so far [for United].
But wherever the manager calls upon me, I will go out there and give 100 percent and look to play well, which I think I’ve done this season. As a footballer, you always want to play and I wanted to be involved in more games this season.
There are plenty more to play, and as long as I am playing well and the manager’s happy, I want to be pulling on the shirt.
