Villa's Young keen for O'Neill stay

Aston Villa ace Ashley Young hopes Martin O'Neill will remain at Villa Park despite being linked with other managerial jobs.

Young is wishing that O'Neill will stay on at Villa for the foreseeable future as the Northern Irishman played a major part in persuading him to move to the club.

"Yeah of course it would be disappointing not to be working with a manager like that," Young told skysports.com.

"He is a top manager, so hopefully I can still have the opportunity to work with him not just now but for years to come."

Young is a big fan of O'Neill's management style and he relishes learning under the ex-Leicester boss.

"It is brilliant [playing under O'Neill]. From the first time I came to the club and met him you could tell he was a different character," added Young.

"Man-management skills to every individual is spot-on and you cannot ask for any more.

"He played a part in my move to Villa. I asked people about him and nobody had a bad word to say.

"If you look at his track record, his career, what he has done, it speaks for itself."
