(Video) Ashley Young Victim of His Own Reputation Following Booking for Diving Against Sunderland

Posted by

Has the Man United once become the victim of his own reputation?

Check in to Burnley vs Manchester United

Man United winger Ashley Young has been guilty of a few dives in his time, an issue that even led to former boss David Moyes having a word with the England man but today the attacker was booked by referee Martin Atkinson following an incident involving his former team-mate Wes Brown.

Whilst it’s true that the 29 year old may have gone over a little too easily the video below suggests that contact was made and on another day could have resulted in a crucial spot-kick that could have handed Louis van Gaal his first win as Man United boss.

So did Ashley Young deserve a yellow? Should a penalty have been awarded?
