Ashley Young - I'll Play Anywhere

Ashley Young - I'll Play Anywhere

Ashley Young says he doesn't mind where he is played next season, as long as he is played!

The 21-year-old former Watford man said:

'My previous managers have always said that I'm pretty versatile and I'm happy whether I'm playing up front or on the wing. I'm capable of doing both, so it doesn't me if I'm on the right, on the left or up front.'

Adding, on the official site: 'As long as I'm in the team I don't mind where I play. It's disappointing not to get in the starting XI but you just keep your chin up and get ready to come on as and when you're needed. That could happen in the first minute or the 90th, so you have to be prepared.'

He also says Villa have to get back playing in Europe, 'This is a massive club, with expectations of playing in Europe. That's where the club belong and I want to help them get there. I know the team are capable of playing in Europe and that's what we are hoping to achieve.'

When I first saw the headline, I thought he was referring to playing for any team--it was quite a relief to read the article!

Good attitude from the young un. The player to watch next season IMO. Will prove to be astute business.

I agree with you Paddy. I believe that next season we may see a return to the 4-3-3 that won both us and Forest League and European titles. Four defenders, three solid midfielders who can also contribute goals, two forwards and a winger. The winger (Young) has the ability to play both flanks dependent on which full back he feels most confident against.

Looking forward to watching him play in the U-21 tournament,he really improved towards end of season after having a mini drop in performance following great start,exciting player.

It is touch and go between Young and Gardner as to who will the one to watch. Young will be more exciting but I honestly believe if Gardner stays fit he can contribute 10 goals from open play next season.

How refreshing to hear good noises from one so young and well paid. has his feet on the ground and he has good advice from somewhere. VOTH I think you are right about Gardner as well, lets see if he can continue his progress. Roll on next season.

Maybe that`s why MON is happy to sell Davis ? Gardner is his golden boy.

Right now I believe that he's better suited to playing out wide. He's a talent though, and can only get better and better. Great piece of business by MON.

I think though Aspinall that Gardner is currently looking the business, Davis isn't.
