Yorke tells Young: Joining Man Utd is ultimate in football

Dwight Yorke says former Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has joined the "ultimate in football" at Manchester United.

' Young is treading the same path as Yorke did in the 1990's.

"That's the ultimate in football, you're going to play for the best club in the world, that's what you're doing. It's impossible to resist," the 39-year-old former strike star told the Birmingham Mail.

"No disrespect to Villa. They are a club I loved dearly for ten years and still have a lot of affection for. They gave me a great base to develop myself as a footballer.

"But when you go to Manchester United and you're playing Champions League football all the time, that's what it's all about.

"I can understand why Ashley Young has gone there, definitely, but he must realise that there will be high expectations on him like nothing he has ever known before."
