Villa winger Young: We're not going to Wembley to just soak up the atmosphere

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young says they're not going to Wembley to make up the numbers in the Carling Cup final against Manchester United.

It will be Young's first Cup final and he is determined not to freeze on the big stage.

Young told the Carling Cup final match programme: "We're not going to Wembley to just soak up the atmosphere. That's part of it, and it will be a great feeling to walk out on to that pitch. But we've got a job to do. We want to win. Any footballer wants to achieve big things during his career and I'm no different.

"I'm an ambitious person and I set myself goals - which I keep to myself. I tick them off in my head when I achieve them."
