Man Utd wing-back Young: Experience making me better player

Manchester United wing-back Ashley Young is convinced his experience has made him a better player.

The 32-year-old, who can play on the wing or further back, has impressed in both full-back positions since his return from injury, starting three of the last four games for the Reds.

Young is currently one of the club's longest-serving players, having arrived at Old Trafford in 2011, and believes he has the intelligence and know-how to understand patterns of play and what his role requires.

"At my age, you have to read the game more, and at full-back you have to read the game more, I think I've got a good footballing brain to be able to do that," Young told MUTV. "I'm just happy to be out there playing and whenever I'm called upon I'll give 100 per cent."
