Sir Alex Ferguson was singing the praises of Danny Welbeck at his press conference today, although suggests the great attitude this local youngster has should be the norm at our club.
Whilst not naming Ravel Morrison, it could be interpreted as a dig at the troublesome youngster, whose poor attitude has almost put an end to his Manchester United career.
“He has a good attitude, although he should have, he’s a young player with an opportunity at Manchester United,” said Ferguson. “That’s one of the reasons you pick these players, because they show their temperament as they come through the youth programmes and the reserves. I am always confident about their temperament, their attitude to the game and their enthusiasm to play. In terms of judging young players, I don’t think we’ve ever failed in that respect.”
Or maybe the manager is intending to use to motivate Morrison?
