Villa's Young: Arsenal legend Wright my hero

Aston Villa star Ashley Young admits he wants to enjoy England success like his hero, Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

He said: "Wrighty was my hero as a kid. I was a big Arsenal fan as a kid and whenever I wasn't playing for the Watford youth team, I would go to Highbury and I was inspired.

"I don't think he played as much as he should have done for England, but when he did play he made a big impression.

"I've played in the Premier League, which was my first target. To represent England would be a huge honour."
