Former boy wonder looks to re-establish himself at Old Trafford.
Ashley Young has vowed to put his injury woes behind him and build on his encouraging return to the first team by impressing new boss David Moyes, ClubCall reports.
Young featured in his side’s Capital One Cup triumph over Norwich City this week, marking his first appearance since the 4-1 thrashing at the hands of cross city rivals Manchester City back in September.
The 28-year-old was taken off early on in the City defeat after failing to get a foothold in the game and has been sat on the sidelines ever since, bar a late cameo in last week’s Champions League victory over Real Sociedad.
However, he was handed a rare start as Moyes made nine changes to the starting line up for the visit of the Canaries and has now given the manager food for thought as he impressed in the 4-0 trumping, and Young is now hoping that he has done enough to show that he can still make a solid contribution to any future success the side may have this term.
“I have not played since the City game. I have been waiting my time and I wanted to get out there and impress,” he said.
“I felt I did well, I enjoyed the game. We will have to wait and see what the manager thinks come the weekend.”
