Ashley Young Provides Perfect Assist On Inter Debut

Ashley Young Provides Perfect Assist On Inter Debut

Manchester United fans will want to look away now as Ashley Young has just laid on the most frustratingly perfect cross for Laturo Martinez's goal for Inter, on the Englishman's debut.

Antonio Conte seems to be on a season long troll of United. Having already got the best out of Romelu Lukaku this season the Italian has got an instant tune out of Young.

The 34-year-old only moved to Italy nine days ago and has already done more for his new club than he did for his previous side this season, with an assist after 29 minutes of his debut against Cagliari.

For much of the latter part of his time at Old Trafford the former Aston Villa winger was moved from an attacking position to a full back, with mixed success.

Having played just 12 league games this season for the Red Devils, and with his deal running out at the end of the season, the clubs agreed a fee of £1.28 million for Young to move in January.

With Conte playing a 5-3-2 system the former England international is now playing as a wing back, allowing him to get forward more, and it's clearly reaped instant rewards.

With no assists all season for the Red Devils before his move it's likely to frustrate fans of the Old Trafford club, who will feel like they can't catch a break.

Lukaku moved in the summer after becoming frustrated with life as an understudy to Marcus Rashford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season.

The Belgian has scored 14 goals in 20 games in Serie A and has helped put the Nerazzurri in position to challenge Juventus for the title.

United on the other hand are struggling and are hanging on to fifth in the Premier League, due mainly to the fact the rest of the league is also poor.

Solskjaer wasn't able to replace Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, also on loan at Inter, Ander Herrera or Marouane Fellaini, who have all left in the last year.

There's a good chance they won't replace Young, not that he'll be looking behind him with much regret right now.
