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."
