Ashley Young is of the opinion that under-fire Manchester United teammate Luke Shaw can be “one of the best in the world” if he works hard and keeps his head down.
Young was not keen to get into that particular matter, but has seen enough of Shaw to back him for the very top.
“I am not here to talk about other people and whatnot,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live. “Obviously he is a player that wants to do well, I want to see him doing well. It’s like all players, you just have to get your head down and work.”
Asked if Shaw has it in him to come again, Young added: “Yeah, of course. He is a fantastic player. I feel he can be one of the best in the world. As I say, you’ve just got to work hard.”
“Of course, everybody in the squad pushes each other on,” Young told Press Association Sport. “We’ve got a healthy competition in our squad and when you’ve got world-class players training day in, day out, everybody wants to be in that team.
“Everybody wants to be in that starting XI. It is tough. I’ve always said, when you join a club like United it’s a tough place to play at. But if you play and you train there and give 100 percent, then get your opportunity and I’ve always said you always get your opportunity there.”
