A Liverpool legend trolls Ashley Young for diving once again

God is watching

Ashley Young is not a right back.

But to the former Aston Villa man’s credit, he’s done a fairly ok job this season.

He made one key interception in last night’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford and overall was tidy in possession.

But his reputation for taking a tumble angered a former Liverpool legend who wasn’t happy with what he was seeing from the one-time flying winger during the game.

Robbie Fowler tweeted his frustration with Young just seven minutes after kick-off

Fowler’s tweet is not exactly a stunning revelation, but the Scouser did show a decent turn of phrase, at least in Twitter terms, when the abuse started rolling in.
