Ashley Young has revealed what made him leave England and Manchester United.
“Obviously being in England all my life, it was a totally different change,” Young said. “But it was an experience that I jumped at.
“It was an opportunity for me to go and play regularly.
“I spoke to Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] and he said that I wasn’t going to play as much as I wanted to, and when you’re coming towards the end of your career you want to be playing as much as you can.
“I’m as fit as anyone and I feel like I’ve still got a lot to give.
“For me, age is nothing but a number. Ole said that he was going to bring younger players through and that I wasn’t going to have as many opportunities.
“When the opportunity arose to come to Inter, it was a no-brainer for me. I was like, ‘get me on the plane, get me out there. Get me signed on the dotted line’.
“I was just speaking to the manager and players that were here that I knew as well. It was a fantastic opportunity; a club that’s massive worldwide, one of the biggest teams in world football.”
