Ashley Young Is 'The Worst Ever Man Utd Captain And The Worst Ever Man Utd Right-Back'

Ashley Young Is 'The Worst Ever Man Utd Captain And The Worst Ever Man Utd Right-Back'

Ashley Young had a terrible time on Wednesday during Manchester United's loss to Barcelona and now he's been accused of being United's worst right back and worst captain by Chris Sutton.

As far as single performances go Ashley Young's against Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final for Manchester United might have been one of the worst seen in the competition.

Young played at right back at Old Trafford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side playing five across the back and the two wing backs given freedom to go forward when the team had possession.

That didn't really work out for Young though and his post match stats painted a picture of how bad he was as he gave away possession 32 times and all 11 of his crosses failed to find a target.

The former Villa player probably won't be looking forward to the prospect of facing Barca in the Camp Nou next week and, having worn the armband in midweek, he's now been described as United's worst ever captain.

Talking on BT Sport on Saturday pundit Chris Sutton said, "Let's get right it Rob [Robbie Savage], he's the worst ever United captain and the worst ever United right-back."

Slightly ironically United's current club captain is Antonio Valencia who, like Young, was a right winger turned into a right back with very little success.

The Ecuadorian hasn't played for United since they beat Newcastle 2-0 in January and that was his only appearance under Solskjaer, previously appearing in the loss to Valencia in the Champions League.

That means that Young might not even be the worst captain or right back in the team right now, especially as Matteo Darmian also can't get in the team.

The Red Devils will be without their best full back Luke Shaw when they play their second leg on Wednesday after the left back picked up a yellow card in the first game.

Diogo Dalot could fill in having impressed in the first leg and being a much better outlet than the more experienced Young.

Who is the worst right back you've seen?
