Ferguson not concerned with lack of goals from Danny Welbeck

Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that Danny Welbeck’s lack of goal is not a concern to him or Manchester United.

So far this season, Danny Welbeck has scored just twice for Manchester United with just one of those coming in the Barclays Premier League.

Last Season Welbeck scored 12-goals during his campaign, this season with just two although he has been played out of position for much of that time.

There have been plenty of media critics that have questioned Welbeck’s goal scoring and of course his future, but Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed any concerns about the England forward.

Speaking with Inside United, Sir Alex Ferguson said:

“Last year he had 12 goals, this year he’s only got two, so that’s a big drop

“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.

“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.”
