Ashley Young appears to catch bird droppings in his mouth during Manchester United vs Swansea match
United midfielder was already unhappy with his side conceding a goal to go behind
Louis van Gaal’s side walked out at Old Trafford for their first Premier League match under Louis van Gaal with renewed optimism, but it was soon normal service resumed as Swansea took the lead through Ki Sung-Yeung’s first half strike.
It couldn’t get much worse for United, but that’s exactly what did happen for midfielder Ashley Young. The England international was left fuming at his side’s defending and gave them a piece of his mind, only for what appeared to be a chunk of bird excrement to land in his mouth.
The image was captured during BT Sport’s live coverage and quickly flooded social media, with the hilarious/sickening shot quickly going viral.
It also showed that football fans are ready to try and defy the Premier League following their announcement that they will attempt to crackdown on Vines of live action.
Watch the video below:
United also has Jesse Lingard limp out of his Premier League debut with a knee injury, and he was replaced early on by Adnan Januzaj to cap a dismal opening half to the season.
The bonus was at least Young didn't dive after the contact.
