Danny Welbeck: I need to score more goals for Man United
Danny Welbeck admits he has not performed in front of goal for Manchester United this season but is determined to improve
Danny Welbeck admits that he has not performed in front of goal for Manchester United this season and is eyeing a central role next term.
Robin van Persie’s prolific form for United since arriving at Old Trafford from Arsenal last summer contributed to Welbeck being limited to just 13 league starts for the Red Devils, with the Dutchman ending up as the top-flight’s top scorer after netting 26 goals.
The England international managed just one goal for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men as they won back the Premier League title from Manchester City.
Welbeck made 27 top-flight appearances in total and although the 22-year-old has been pleased to get a decent number of games under his belt, he is desperate to improve his goal-return next season.
“This season has been the most number of matches I have played and my performances have been a lot more consistent but the goals return has not been good at all,” Welbeck told MUTV.
“I do feel if, I can get a better goals return, I will be flying. I want to be up front and scoring goals.
“If I am playing on the wings, I still want to score more goals but, preferably, I will be up front and scoring goals there.”
This season’s triumph is Welbeck’s first Premier League title and the striker is looking forward to working under new Red Devils boss David Moyes.
“It [winning my first title] is something words don’t really describe,” he continued. “To finally do it is something I’m really proud of.
“We’ve got a new manager coming in and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to working with him. It’s just exciting times and I can’t wait to get started.”
