Danny Welbeck has made a fantastic impression on new manager David Moyes in the first couple of weeks pre-season training as the reds plan to take on Singha All Stars tomorrow in Bangkok.
With Wayne Rooney leave camp on Thursday, Danny Welbeck is the only out-and-out striker left in the squad until Robin van Persie joins up in Sydney, Australia.
At his pre-match press conference, Moyes said:
“I’ve only seen him for a short time but I’ve been impressed, he looks a very good player.
“A lot of the things he’s done have been excellent. If we can add some goals to his tally from last year, it will make a big difference. From what I’ve seen so far, he’s an exciting player and someone I’m looking forward to working with.”
Manchester United face Singha All Stars on Saturday, youngsters Jesse Lingard, Michael Keane and Adnan Januzaj will all be handed a chance to impress during the tour.
“Tomorrow is my first opportunity to manage the team, and it will take a little bit of time to get used to each other but that’s what the games are for. We’ll try and give as many people as we can an opportunity to play. We’ll see some young players as well. Obviously, we will use all the games to prepare for the start of the season.”
