A good start to a career at Manchester United is one thing but ensuring it is prolonged and turned into a memorable United career is another matter.

Ashley Young deservedly picked up the man-of-the-match award against West Bromwich Albion and there is genuine anticipation that the signing from Aston Villa is ready to up his game now that he`s surrounded by top-notch professionals.

Young, speaking to the press, doesn`t seem fazed by the attention and shows a remarkable willing to learn from those around him, remarking,

“I take everything on board form training and I want to put that on the field anytime that I put a United shirt on.”

“I learn and will keep getting better with the guys around me. I`ve a good understanding with the players but everyone`s got a great understanding here, that`s why they have won so much.”

Young does, of course, give Sir Alex Ferguson so many options. He can play on either flank but isn`t averse to playing a central role where his explosive pace can catch defenders unawares.

But, like the opening paragraph implies, it is a monumental step and one that will require Young to put in a hell of a lot of work to maintain, and improve upon, the start he`s made to his United career.
