Inter wing-back Ashley Young has revealed that his childhood football idol was former Arsenal and England national team striker Ian Wright.

“My childhood idol? It’s not a mystery. I supported Arsenal and loved Ian Wright. What a striker! He was my point of reference, he put a lot of passion into the game and that is what I try to do too,” he explained in an interview with Inter’s official club match day programme for this weekend’s match away to Spezia.

Asked about how it felt to win the Premier League whilst with Manchester United, Young revealed: “It was the most exciting thing in my career. Winning in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season, it was a dream.

Next the experienced Englishman spoke on a quality that he thinks has gotten him to where he has in football: “Working everyday and remaining humble. Humility always allows you to learn.”

Young also spoke on his favourite cuisine: “I love the Jamaican dishes my mother cooks. She made them reach me even when I was away from home.”

In conclusion he revealed the meaning behind the tattoo that he has on his back: “It says a lot about me. There is me holding my son by the hand, inside the stadium with the ball under my arm.”

Young joined Inter from Manchester United back in the January transfer window on an initial six month contract. After impressing, Inter took up the option to extend his deal until the end of this season.

Since arriving at the Nerazzurri, the 35-year-old, who has represented England 39 times, has made 39 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored four goals and tallied seven assists.
