Ashley Young, and I say this with a genuinely heavy heart, get the fuck out of my football team. Gary Neville knew when to retire, stop hurting Man United by continuing to play.
Lionel Messi’s first-half double inspired Barcelona into their first Champions League semi-final since 2015 as Manchester United were knocked out of Europe after a 3-0 loss at the Nou Camp, and 4-0 defeat on aggregate.
Left bruised and bleeding from a clash with Chris Smalling in the 1-0 first-leg win last week, Messi had his payback, ending his six-year quarter-final drought with a fine low strike in the 16th minute before his second somehow squirmed under David de Gea four minutes later.
United had started brightly before the quick-fire double with Marcus Rashford hitting the bar in the opening minute, but they could not mount an unlikely comeback at the scene of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s heroics 20 years ago, with Philippe Coutinho curling in a beauty to seal the tie after the break.
The result means United have suffered their heaviest-ever aggregate defeat in a two-legged European tie.Barca will discover their semi-final opponents on Wednesday when Liverpool take their 2-0 lead to Porto, while for United their focus switches to the top-four race in the Premier League, starting with a trip to Everton on Super Sunday.
After the match, Red Devils fans were unhappy about the performance of England international Ashley Young.
He started as the left fullback in the absence of Luke Shaw who was suspended for the game, after a good start from United, it didn’t take too long for Young to start replicating his awful performance against Barcelona at Old Trafford in Camp Nou.
He was made to pay for a costly mistake in the 16th minute after losing the ball to Messi in his own half.
Here are reactions from fans on Twitter after Young’s awful performance against Barcelona:
Individual mistakes costs us. Ashley Young needs to start looking for a career outside of football. Awful footballer.
Ashley Young on the ball makes me feel uncomfortable. Just look at the number of chances he had to get out of that corner. So frustrating.
