If you look at the career of Ashley Young, who played at Manchester United, he has had his ups and downs.
He had forced himself into the plans of the former manager, Louis van Gaal as well as suffering injuries during several matches. He also suffered when he was moved to playing positions that did not sit well with his style of playing. As another manager has joined up there is speculation as to whether this 30 year old player would be seeing changes in his future with the club.
The new manager, Jose Mourinho has definitely got many players sitting on the edge, uncertain of their future with the club as per the wishes of the new manager.
Ashley Young might be looking at wondering whether he would be staying put at the club or whether he would be put in the first eleven member team. United has reinforced the right and left attacking positions in the midfield, there have been several new players signed up to fortify these ranks. There is definitely more competition for the midfield positions in the team.
As the team performed dismally in the last season, Jose definitely has a difficult task ahead of him. Hence, if he is in doubt of any player’s fitment with the club, he would definitely take action. However, Young has been able to hold onto the pecking order and it is suggested that he would probably be fitting into the plans of the new manager in some ways. That would certainly work well with him as he would be given a chance to prove himself and find the best position in which he can contribute significantly to the team. He has also been showing himself to be ready for work so that his attitude is ready to be positive for the new season. Indeed, most players would want to prove themselves this season and bring the lost glory of the club back this year.
