Danny Welbeck Celebrates Vs RealMadrid

Danny Welbeck has set himself the target of more goals next season after a disappointing return for this campaign.

Welbeck managed to find the net just twice in 39 games, a marked decrease from the 12 he scored the previous season.

The introduction of Robin Van Persie saw the England international shunted out wide, decreasing his chances of finding the net but Welbeck is making no excuses and understands that he needs to find his goalscoring touch again next term.

Speaking in The Mirror, Welbeck said:

“I’ve been playing on the wing, which has inhibited my ability to get into goalscoring positions.

“Overall, there have been improvements to my game and I have been more consistent.

“I’ve played up front for England, been away to tournaments and scored goals there, so I know once I get into those positions I will put the chances away.

“I’m also aware that knowing how to play in different positions and developing in different areas of the pitch will only benefit me and the teams I play for.

“I’m happy to help the team out and it doesn’t really matter whether I’m playing on the wing or up front, I should have had a much better goal return.”
