Aston Villa winger Young wants to takeover from Ronaldo

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young wants to take over former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo's mantle as the Premiership's top entertainer.

"Ronaldo is a world-class player and for him to leave is disappointing," said Young, signed from Watford for £9.5m in January 2007.

"Ronaldo was fantastic in the Premier League and he is a world-beater. I would still like to play against him as he is another winger.

"We have been compared by some but I have my own style. If more people start talking about me and paying me compliments now he has gone I will be pleased."
