Manchester United wing-back Ashley Young insists he never considered leaving the club, despite finding himself on the periphery at Old Trafford last season.
The England international struggled for game time during Jose Mourinho’s first campaign with the Red Devils and was tipped with a move away during the off-season.
However, the 32-year-old remained determined to win over the Portuguese and has managed just that, having become a more regular feature for United this term.
"I think there did come a point last season where I wasn't in the squad," said Young, who could make his first England appearance in four years against Germany on Friday.
"I wasn't even making the 18.
"It was disappointing but I have never thought about leaving the club. I've always got that determination to get back in the squad and get back playing. As a footballer, you want to play week in, week out."
