Villa fullback Hutton: Young right to make move to Man Utd

Aston Villa fullback Alan Hutton feels Manchester United winger Ashley Young was right to leave Villa Park in the summer.

Hutton will come face-to-face with Young today.

He told The Sun: "I'm sure Ashley will get a great reception.

"He always gave his best for the club and I think our supporters appreciate that.

"When someone plays as well as Ashley did over a sustained period, you can be sure the really big teams in world football are going to come sniffing about. I think the Villa fans knew Ashley was going to move on if the right offer came in.

"The important thing is he never messed anyone about. I don't think you could ever hold it against a player, who has given his all for you, if he decides to go to the Manchester Uniteds of this world.

"Ashley has earned the reception he'll get from our fans because he never let them down whenever he pulled on a Villa shirt."
