Ex-Man Utd winger Wallace: Young crossing in Beckham class

Former Manchester United winger Danny Wallace has hailed Ashley Young's crossing as the best they've seen since David Beckham.

Former Manchester United winger Danny Wallace has hailed Ashley Young's crossing as the best they've seen since David Beckham.

Wallace believes both the Reds and England are going to benefit from Young’s return to form.

“I think Ashley Young’s ability to cross a ball is similar to that of David Beckham,” Wallace told the Manchester Evening News.

“He is great at getting an accurate ball in and you can see when he’s on his game how much Wayne Rooney benefits from that. Whether it is on the run or from a set-piece, he has a great delivery. His corner for Rooney’s goal at Spurs was typical and it is good to see him back doing that again after his injury.

“But he also has a goal in his locker, as we have seen. He has six now and he can get himself into double figures by the end of the season.

“If Ashley can do that and keep going with his assists then United are going to have a great chance."
