Ashley Young Is Expected To Become Manchester United's Club Captain Next Season

Ashley Young Is Expected To Become Manchester United's Club Captain Next Season

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to name Ashley Young as club captain next season, according to reports.

The 33-year-old full back, who has struggled for the majority of this year, will claim the armband after Manchester United decided against renewing Antonio Valencia's contract.

It is believed that Young is not guaranteed a place in the starting XI next season, so Solskjaer is looking to appoint a vice-captain for when he isn't on the pitch.

The Times report Paul Pogba is expected to be offered the 'captaincy role' at Old Trafford as part of plan to keep him on board, while David De Gea and Chris Smalling are also candidates.

As you can imagine, this piece of news did not go down well with Manchester United fans on social media.

The criticism of Young was especially heavy after defeat to Barcelona at Old Trafford back in April.

Not only did he lose possession a total of 32 times throughout the Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona, but no player on the pitch lost possession more.

From his defensive work to his influence in the final third, the experienced winger turned full-back was all over the place, at times.

The 33-year-old's inability to find a man from a simple cross was another frustrating part to his game. He attempted a total of 11 crosses but failed to find his teammates on a single occasion.

In fact, his passing accuracy of 73.3% was unsurprisingly the lowest on the pitch.

Do you think Ashley Young should be given the captain's armband next season?

Let us know in the comments. This should be interesting!
