Ashley Young on media pressure: “Thanks to my entourage, I have been able to take a back seat.”

Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe, England international and Manchester United wide-man Ashley Young discussed the intense media scrutiny involved with playing for the Red Devils, among other things.

“When you open an English newspaper, doesn’t matter which one, you will certainly find an article on United, whether it is a photo of a player who is leaving the training centre or a transfer rumour. With the help of my entourage, I have learned to take a back seat with all of that, otherwise you risk plunging yourself into difficulty… There you have the flip-side of playing for such a club.”
