Ex-Man Utd winger Blomqvist: Young not star-struck like I was

Former Manchester United winger Jesper Blomqvist is amazed at how quickly Ashley Young has settled.

Blomqvist admits he found it difficult to settle into life at United after his £4.4m move from Parma.

On his first day, he walked into a dressing room full of star names like Peter Schmeichel, Jaap Stam, David Beckham and Roy Keane.

That Young has done the same, and flourished, makes his rapid acclimatisation even more impressive, according to Blomqvist.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "It was quite difficult because it's a huge club. For me, it took a little longer. Maybe I wasn't as good as him at finding my feet and it took me a bit of time really.

"There were a lot of big players and usually you have to take your time to get into it, at the club as well as in the team."
