Ashley Young is hoping the Martin O’Neill to England link proves unfounded as he is desperate for the Villa boss to stay.
He told Sky Sports, ‘Yeah of course it would be disappointing not to be working with a manager like that. He is a top manager, so hopefully I can still have the opportunity to work with him not just now but for years to come.’
He further explains the lure of O’Neill adding, ‘Man-management skills to every individual is spot-on and you cannot ask for any more. He played a part in my move to Villa. I asked people about him and nobody had a bad word to say. If you look at his track record, his career, what he has done, it speaks for itself.’
Maybe this is an opportune time to use the poll suggested some weeks back by Eltoro asking ‘How well do you think MON’s done so far?’
