Ferguson not concerned by Welbeck tally

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson insists he is not concerned at Danny Welbeck’s paltry goals return for Manchester United this season. He added: “Maybe he doesn’t appreciate us moving him around in various positions and we’ve maybe overused that because he is young. “But his value to the club is there because I know he can do a job for me in any of those positions. “It’s a fantastic asset when you have a player who is as adaptable as that. “But I think he will find his role through the middle once he gets that maturity and gets into a more consistent way of scoring.” Welbeck has scored just twice for the Red Devils, and only once in the Premier League. It is a remarkable statistic, particularly as he has got three for England, and a massive downturn from the 12 he netted last season. “Last year he had 12 goals, this year he’s only got two, so that’s a big drop,” Ferguson told Inside United. “But that drop doesn’t concern us because he still applies himself really well and still looks to score, still looks to get a chance and with that kind of courage he will eventually become a regular goalscorer.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
