After scoring a brilliant goal in his debut during our 5-0 battering of Stoke last season, Sir Alex Ferguson tipped Danny Welbeck for a big International future, as well as with United.
Welbeck scored our only goal in a 1-0 win over Wolves this week, where we played with ten men for an hour of the match, and says he’s more concerned with his United career than with England.
“I didn’t know Sir Alex had said that about England but it doesn’t drive me on,” said Welbeck. “It’s a great plus to hear it but I’m really just concentrating on Manchester United at the moment. I suppose I’m just like any other normal Manc boy, really. To be given the chance to play for United is a dream. I am always willing to go when asked. I need to carry on training hard and get more first-team chances. But that’s the aim of all the young boys here. We’re just looking forward to the next round now, so just play as many youngsters as possible, Fergie!”
