It has been revealed that Ashley Young has singled out David Beckham as his favourite Manchester United legend.
The England international winger had the chance to play with Beckham for the Three Lions.
He told manutd.com: “Fantastic and exceptional are words that come into your head when you speak about Becks and what he did in his career – he’s been a fantastic servant to the game.
“When I first got into the England squad, David was captain and helped me straight away. He gave me some good advice about being in the squad and when an England captain speaks to you, you listen! The best piece of advice he gave me was to never stop working. It was great advice to have at the time and it’s something I now relay to other younger players – you have to put the hard work in to reap the rewards.
“Everything about his play was great to watch but he was also one of the hardest working players. I think that’s a side of his game that a lot of people maybe didn’t realise, just how much work he put in on and off the pitch – he worked as hard in training as he did in matches. As a youngster going into the England squad, seeing a professional like that working as hard as he did makes you want to work as hard and try to emulate everything he’s done.”
