Ashley Young has come out and categorically denied that a bird left a present in his mouth during Manchester United's first game of the season against Swansea.
I can, 100%, absolutely confirm it was not bird poo. But I’d love to know who put that video out and how they did it. Or what my reaction might have been if it actually was
At the time of the incident, Young vowed to get to the bottom of it but didn't have an answer to what it might have been.
I need to put it out there, I don't actually know. I don't know what happened. You would have seen a reaction from me. I've seen the video about 100 times. I don't know what it was. I need to get to the bottom of it.
Seems as though Young is intent to blame technology and a savvy photoshopped but we are dubious of the explanation. The fact that it happened in live television is a bit of a problem.
Ashley Young would like to know "who did that video". It was on live television, you numbskull. You're not convincing anyone it wasn't poo.

Luke Shaw recently said that Young is the joker in the dressing room and so the chance to extract some revenge for this incident was too good to pass up. And so the English international's teammates decide to play a prank on him by leaving a pigeon in his training locker at Carrington recently but Young is not budging on his denial.
