Man Utd icon Yorke: Ferguson knows what he is doing with Young signing

Manchester United icon Dwight Yorke feels fans should trust the judgment of Sir Alex Ferguson over his signing of Aston Villa winger Ashley Young.

Ferguson's willingness to pay big money for the 25-year-old England star and offer him a five-year contract is enough to convince Yorke that Young could follow his own success at the Theatre of Dreams.

"He's shown good potential and Manchester United normally don't get it too wrong when they go after players," Yorke told the Birmingham Mail.

"If Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to pay that then he must see him as a Manchester United player. It's all well and good Sir Alex Ferguson giving you the opportunity, but you have to take it.

"He's been given a shot at success and he has to make sure he does everything he can to be a winner at Manchester."
