Ex-QPR man defends Man Utd winger

Former QPR defender Clarke Carlisle has defended Ashley Young following recent controversy surrounding the Manchester United winger.

Young has been accused of diving after winning penalties in matches against QPR and Aston Villa.

But PFA chairman Carlisle, who was a team-mate of Young at Watford, said: “I wouldn’t say he is or has been prone to falling over.

“He is quick and slight so it doesn’t take much contact to make him go over.”
