Man Utd boss admits Young looked for penalty

Young won a spot-kick in the 4-0 win over Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday.

“I think he played for the penalty. If the player decides to put his foot in and doesn’t stay on his own feet and read the situation then he’s fallen into that you know,” Ferguson told Sky Sports.

“He’s definitely taken him but I think it was a dramatic fall and I think that he maybe over did the fall but it was a penalty, there was no doubt about that.

“And I don’t think he can have any compliant because he has actually taken him.”

Ferguson was pleased with the performance of his side against Villa.

“I thought that was one of our better performances for a while,” he said.

“There could be twists and turns (in the title race) yet but I think the name of the game now is for us to enjoy ourselves, play with the expression we did today and hopefully we’ll be alright.

“My experience tells me that there’s always something’s going to bite you on the bum so hopefully we can avoid that.

“The name of the game is not to drop any more points.”
