Ashley Young explains leaving Man Utd for Inter Milan

Ashley Young has explained leaving Manchester United for Inter Milan in January.

The defender revealed he wants to stay at the club for at least another year and revealed a call from Antonio Conte helped seal the move.

Young told Corriere Della Sera: "I want to stay and win.

"I'm learning the language, the people are very passionate. When you talk, you actually scream.

"Of course I do. I love Italy, Milan, the warmth of the fans.

"When (Antonio) Conte called me, I immediately felt his passion, he transmitted it to me. It was a good opportunity and I said: "I'm going there, I want to be part of something great.

"He's not sitting down for even moment, but seeing him like that is a boost for the players. He has a winning mentality, he is a born winner and a fighter."
