Dusan Tadic Reveals What Ashley Young Said To Him After Elbow And It's Actually Ridiculous

Dusan Tadic Reveals What Ashley Young Said To Him After Elbow And It's Actually Ridiculous

Ashley Young has been suspended for three games by the FA after admitted a charge of violent conduct.

The Manchester United full-back accepted the charge, but had the appeal over the length of the ban rejected.

Young lashed out at Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic when marking him on a corner, elbowing him in the stomach in the 51st minute of the second half.

The 32-year-old, who has been one of United's stand out performers this season, will miss game against Everton, Derby and Stoke in the coming weeks.

Just a day after Young was officially banned, Southampton player Tadic has revealed what the Manchester United player said shortly after the incident.

To the surprise of Tadic when he questioned his motives behind the elbow, Young played down the incident, saying: "I didn't do anything".

Here's what Tadic said in full regarding the controversy:

"Yes, he elbowed me and I asked him, "Why did you do this?". I didn't really understand. I can fall down but it was really strange because I didn't expect that from him." Tadic said via Metro.

When asked if he provoked Young, the Serbian said:

"No, no, no, nothing. I was surprised, and then next corner I asked him, "Why did you do that?", and he said, "I didn't do anything". 'I said, "You didn't do anything? You elbowed me in the stomach without reason". 'OK, if you want to push it's different, but an elbow is different."

So Ashley Young was convinced he did nothing, despite clearly elbowing him when the corner was swung in during the second half.
