Danny Welbeck Celebrates Vs RealMadrid

Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck is happy with the progress he has made this season, but accepts that he needs to find the net with more frequency.

Despite his poor goal return this season, Welbeck has found himself a key player in the team and is frequently called upon when United face top opposition. He was selected ahead of Wayne Rooney in the second leg of United’s tie with Real Madrid and his performances against Real Madrid drew acclaim.

“It was a massive day for the club and for myself. The manager picked the team that he thought could go out and get the result and we had chances to win the game there.

“Ultimately the tie ended in big disappointment for us, but I was pleased with my performance at the Bernabeu and it was an experience I’ll never forget.”

Welbeck feels a new level of consistency has played a key part in his improved performances, but as a striker understands that goals are a key component to his role:

“I think my performances have been more consistent [for United].

“I haven’t always played in my preferred position but playing in different areas allows you to develop an understanding of the other attacking positions which can only benefit you as a player.

“The one thing I want to do is score more goals.”

    He’s either a striker that doesn’t score or a winger that doesn’t create. Either way he is not good enough for Manchester United.

      I happen to be of the opinion that people that don’t rate Welbeck know very little about football…

        Well I happen to be of the opinion that people should support their local team that their fathers and fathers fathers supported. Otherwise you could just be labelled as a glory hunter that doesn’t know anything about football himself….chudi from Manchester is it? Somehow I think not!

    Why don’t you tell us what he offers. Playing upfront is all about result. You either score or you assist and Welbeck doesn’t do that. And don’t give me work rate as an excuse. Yesterdays game proves him to be simply not united class.

    • Haha! says:

      Exactly! This chudi doesn’t know anything so he won’t reply to your question because he can’t answer it. If he did he would have definitely said what all the other average player fanboys would say, that you already covered, “his work rate is exceptional”…. Wow a footballer that gets payed 50k a week is running around? If only all players ran… Oh wait!
