Thanks Young for the service to the great Manchester United. I still believe we can get 4th position if focus is 100%. Teamwork is vital for the two remaining games, we can score 5 goals a game in case of goal difference.

Ooouch! Young deserves best player of the united... I love him watching when he's playing

Thank you for everything but you suppose to leave

Thanks for the memories Ashley I wish you good luck in your future endeavors.

Ashley young...ignore all the haters...they are just glory hunting fans.....I see you give your all for Manchester United.....unlike some players who play when they feel like....good luck...god bless👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

On fire or not you are true devil, remember it!!!

😂😂😂😂 welcome to the EUROPA cup next season. All the best Sir

Ashley, you never stop fighting. Your commitment to our club is unquestionable. Thank you. To all the horrible comments on this post, you are no United fans. Take your nasty comments somewhere else!

At one point we even thought we could win the champions league. You've let us down young, just leave

Thanks for everything you have done for us. Your contributions will be always remembered. Please give opportunities for our new players.

Nobody is no mistake, the important thing is how you face it and draw experience for yourself. People asked him to leave the club when he played badly, they denied what he had devoted to the club so far, I think they are not worthy to bother him. I always believed and supported him, supported MU to the end. Trying on the Young man❤

The biggest problem is that you're the captain of Manchester United and you don't deserve to play any kind of football , Kindly leave this club

Please go to play snooker

The way disappoint me every game, I think it's high time u left the team with honour,

This man played well today and LuKaKu either

I hope its ONLY 2 more left here for you. Be a gentleman like G Neville did and informed he cannot play anymore for this great club and retire. Be genuine. You have been a great servant and won titles here, but now is the time to say bye. #Rebuild

17 second you held to the ball and then gave it to Messi Captain Marvel

We love our team but no more hope,let's plan for next season

Ashley young sometimes you are good sometimes you are bad but and when I say i love you, ilove you with all your bad & good sides - with all your mistakes and good features with Out any compromise - with Out any condition 😘😍

I hope united will buy great player to RB position A.young, i think u should retired end of this season

We can't do with out Ashley Young he's quite the engine in the team I think I've heard enough of the stick he gets lets focus on looking for new placements and replacements for De Gea and Pogba they don't want to be there

Please don't start next two games, get Rojo or Darmian in your place..and we will be good! 😒

Work hard.those things of reverncing uo self back to the Degeas box wen Hazard attacks style up

Man Utd is doing me more harm than good. I think I need sound medical check up watching how disgusting de Gae is letting us down with high profile errors.

You guys aren't fighting like Manchester United, you guys aren't fighting till the very end, it's like you have already reached end u are just being a disappointment you guys ,

Dear Ashley young, We at Doncaster rovers really needs u, Best RB in the world Just leave my darling Manchester United Thank you

Dear Ashley, May be you remember me, the manager of John Carew. We talked a lot when you were in Villa. So I feel I know you better than those who only see you from a stand. I see some unproper comments here on this your site which I react to. Try to forgive them writing these things because they have no idea of football, how it should be played and what a wonderful person you are. I want you to know that you and your success are followed also here in Norway. You are an amazing footballplayer, but most of all a wonderful person, an excellent role model. You impressed me and I am grateful for knowing you. So I hope you just close your eyes for these stupid comments and go on being who you are. I wish you all the best and a happy Easter! 👍 🐣

You don't deserve to captain our team. That was garbage

Con mẹ mày biến khỏi clb ngay lập tức. Mày là nỗi nụuc của MU. Vậy mà còn đeo băng đội trưởng, tao đã ko ưa lối đá của mày từ lâu rồi. Mày chạy như cái xe ô tô chúe đá đấm gì. Cút gấp khỏi clb MU

Please leave United...very soon...we want to be the best team...!!! You don't have enough confidence to play forward..!!! Very shame on you...!!
