Good luck to him but this is few years to late, look the stream of United captains and then you have freaking Young but best part of all, which isnt his fault, you have those who see him as loyal servant, pure gold.
Young had a good career here. A model professional with a temper on him only surpassed by Roy Keane at times. Since this is a departure thread for a loyal club servant I see no need to throw criticism in here, but only wish the player well and hope his adventure in Inter is a success.
He was a valuable servant to the club in his time but his time has passed. This is what Ole will do for us, clear the way for youngsters and new signings before expanding the squad. This way takes more time but is the right way.
Never good enough and the fact he stayed so long is a testament to our own decline
And give me a break with the great/loyal servant crap
He was getting paid 100k bags a week for woeful performances yet he still abandoned ship mid season the very second another club came in for him
I think he played every outfield position at one time or another? Played left back and centre forward in the same game once iirc. His attitude could never be questioned, best of luck to him in these final few years of a successful career.
Wish him all the best, was never top bracket but I always had a soft spot for him and he gave us some good moments.
The goals in the 8-2 Vs Arsenal
Late equaliser away at Newcastle causing scenes in the away end
As above, late winner away at Stoke
Sealing the late win away at Blackburn, again scenes
Rocking up and getting stuck in with the away fans when out injured
Always seemed a solid pro and someone that would set a good example in terms of work ethic to young lads coming through.
All that said, think it's the right time for both parties for him to move on. His last decent move and a chance at some silverware in a different league. A bit concerned that it's another experienced head gone from the changing room, and leaves us a full back injury away from being short, but mid-long term we'll be better off.
