Description

The Aston Villa winger explains how memories of rejection can help him win back his England place. It’s Bodymoor Heath, the Aston Villa training ground, little more than a loose shank away from The Belfry in a corner of the West Midlands that estate agents would typically characterise as “leafy”. Ashley Young is sitting in the corner of a snooker room, wearing a hooded top and the kind of diamond-encrusted accessories that demonstrate how sporting excellence can reap fantastic remuneration.
