Ashley Young proved himself to be a good man after he helped a fan and his father after an accident. He showed that no matter who he was, his duty was to be a good human first.
Even though the game had kicked off inside Old Trafford, Ashley Young waited till the medics arrived and did not leave the boy and his father alone.
The boy was hit by a Range Rover while he was crossing the road.
A witness, Michael Robinson, 23, said: “We were on our way to the game when we heard a sickening thud.
“When we turned round we could see this young lad on the floor screaming and shouting.
“As we got closer I saw that Ashley Young had stopped to help the boy. There was blood on the back of the lad’s head and he was crying as his dad held him in his arms. Ashley was on his phone and seemed to be very concerned. The lad seemed more shook up than anything — but then he seemed to get worse.
“Ashley wasn’t bothered about kick-off. He waited with the young lad and his dad.
“It was good to see him behaving just like any other member of the public.”
Police told that the boy fan suffered a fractured skull in the “minor collision” and is under observation in hospital. Ashley later went to Old Trafford where United lost to Tottenham at home.
