Man Utd’s Ashley Young Eats Chips in a Really Weird Way

Man Utd’s Ashley Young Eats Chips in a Really Weird Way

It appears whilst he’s been sitting on the Manchester United bench all season, Ashley Young has picked up a seriously weird habit when it comes to eating chips.

The England international has been used sparingly since Jose Mourinho’s arrival last summer, with Europa League and cup matches seemingly his only hope of getting a game.

But perhaps Mourinho just heard about Young’s eating manners and felt a bit weird about playing him.

In an interview with Fuel, Young explains: “I don’t know if I can say this but – oh well. If I’ve gone to get a takeaway and I get chips.

“I like to match up the chips in length. That is actually quite weird.

“You go through the chips and I pick them out in twos, that’s a weird thing as well.

“But if they’re not the same length then I go hunting for the same length chips.”

We have absolutely no idea if this is a common thing amongst people in the UK, or if Young is in a population of one when it comes to his bizarre preferences.

To be fair, Young has eaten bird shit before, so anything is a step up from that.

What do you make of Young’s strange preferences?
