Ashley Young 'Booed' By Manchester United Fans In Pre-Season Friendly Against Inter Milan

Manchester United full-back Ashley Young was booed by his own 'fans' during the club's pre-season friendly win against Inter Milan on Saturday.

And after the full-time whistle, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about the booing incident.

"I think Ashley is a top professional. He always gives absolutely everything and his delivery today ended up with a goal." he said via Manchester Evening News.

"We want our fans to support our players and Ash has been a very loyal servant to this club for many years and he will keep on performing when he plays.

"I've not spoken to him, they've had to do running after the game, but I'll have a chat with him, yeah."

Manchester United went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a great strike from 17-year-old academy graduate Mason Greenwood.

But one of the main talking points was the treatment of club captain Young.

One Twitter user said: "I don't care who you are and no matter what you think of Ashley Young. Whether he's good enough for United or not he gives 100% every game.

"To boo him is just pathetic. Imagine going all the way to Singapore, spending all that money just to boo a player. Grow up."

While another said: "These fans have been great all game but booing Ashley Young regardless of your opinion of him is just pathetic. You don't boo your own players."
