Ashley Young: A bird didn't poo in my mouth
Ashley Young insists a pigeon did not defecate in his mouth during Manchester United's opening game of the season.
Video footage of what appears to be guano (pigeon faeces) descending from above and into Young's mouth has circulated on the internet, but the footballer is adamant it was not bird poo.
Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Young said: "I can, 100 percent, absolutely confirm it was not bird poo.
"But I'd love to know who put that video out and how they did it. Or what my reaction might have been if it actually was."
