Ashley Young: Winning mentality easy to adopt when arriving at Old Trafford

The 28-year-old won his first Premier League medal last season, two years after he made the £17million move from Aston Villa, and feels the winning mentality that has carried the club to so many honours over the years is something new arrivals can pick up straight away.

Young spoke ahead of United's visit to old rivals Liverpool on Sunday, which will mark David Moyes' first return to Merseyside since taking the reins at Old Trafford in the summer.

He said: "When you come to a place like Manchester United, you want success.

"You look at the trophy cabinet and the history. You want a piece of that.

"Everybody is a winner here. You see that in training. No-one wants to lose.

"If you have that in training, you take it onto the pitch. We want to retain the title that we won last season."

The presence of David Moyes is sure to attract the attention of the home fans following his switch from city rivals Everton but Young doesn't see how the atmosphere could get any more intense than normal.

"I don't think there has ever been a time when Manchester United have gone there and Liverpool haven't been up for it," said the England international.

"You know what the rivalry is like between the two clubs. It will be a fiery atmosphere.

"But you want to play in the fiery games. It is what you dreamt about as a boy.

"We know what to expect. We will keep a cool head, let the fans have their rivalry and try to do our jobs in the right way."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
