What Alli said to Young to spark pitch scuffle

Manchester United’s Ashley Young was clearly on a wind up mission on Dele with their 30th minute spat in Saturday’s match well documented.

The incident occurred when Young felt he had been caught in the face by Serge Aurier.

Alli then decided to get involved and he went head-to-head with Young which in turn lead to players from both sides separating the pair.

It wasn’t clear what the 21 year-old had said to spark the row but Young’s response was clear and well received by a lot United’s fans.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Alli told Young to ‘retire with a zimmer frame’.
Alli’s cheeky retort quickly led Young to reply, ‘Let me know when you win the Prem’.

Young was clearly tasked with trying to get a rise out of Alli the entire game, and our man did very well to keep his cool. Alli’s critics are quick to point out his fiery side but less critical of players or tactics designed to wind up opposition players.
