He missed out on World Cup selection last year, but Boothroyd says Youngâ€™s move to United is set to ignite his Âinternational career.
â€śHe has settled in very Âquickly â€“ I think he needed another challenge and he has certainly gone to the best club and is playing under the best manager to get that out of him,â€ť said Boothroyd, who worked with Young at Watford. â€śThe players of the quality United have will really bring the best out of him.
â€śBecause of the talent that he had and because of the money that we didnâ€™t have at Watford, we couldnâ€™t go out and buy Âanybody, so he got his chance.
â€śIâ€™ve always been a big Âbeliever in giving young talent a chance, although there were times when he played for us that he was decidedly Âaverage.
â€śBut heâ€™s fiercely ambitious, wants to win things and the fact that heâ€™s now playing for United will suit him because you canâ€™t get into a comfort zone.
â€śHeâ€™ll get Champions League football and add that to his bow â€“ which makes an England manager more ready to pick him.â€ť
