Man United’s Ashley Young: We must take positives from loss
Manchester United winger Ashley Young urges the Red Devils to take the positives from their loss to Stoke City
Ashley Young has urged Manchester United to take the positives from their 2-1 loss to Stoke City.
The Red Devils suffered another blow in their bid to finish in the top four after Charlie Adam’s brace helped the Potters seal a memorable win over the defending champions.
We’ve got to take the positives out of today and get ourselves back into the game
And United winger Young, who has scored two top-flight goals this season, admitted that the Red Devils paid the price for failing to take their chances at the Britannia Stadium.
“Adam’s goal was a tremendous strike, but even after that we always knew we were going to be in the game,” Young told United’s website.
“We played until the final whistle, but we’re disappointed we could not get the second goal. We talked about getting to the byline, and getting the ball into the box, but the frustrating thing is that we did not finish it off today, and that cost us.
“We’ve got to take the positives out of today and get ourselves back into the game. With creating all those chances, we have to take them.”
He added: “It was really windy even in the warm-up, but it’s just one of those things you have to deal with, it’s always like that when you come here normally!”
