WELBECK IS BACK
Even though he played a majority of the matches for Manchester United last season, Danny Welbeck had a personal disappointing season in front of goal because he scored only two goals through the entire campaign. Everton looked extremely disappointing in the first pre-season match under the new era of David Moyes. They lost 1-0 against Thailand in the friendly match, but Moyes is confident that they can hit the goal scoring from that has been a trademark of Manchester United over the years. He has also expressed his confidence about Welbeck becoming regular goalscorer for United in the future.
There has been a lot of talk surrounding the future of Wayne Rooney at the club. The 27-year-old England international is widely expected to leave the club before the end of the transfer window. United have not been linked with any strikers at the moment. This could force Welbeck into being the second or third choice striker at the club behind Robin van Persie. There has also been speculation about the future of Javier Hernandez as well. Despite the poor performance last season, Moyes is hoping that the youngster will be able to hit a goalscoring form.
Moyes is of the opinion that as striker works hard regularly, he will be able to get more confidence.
“When I arrived I was told how important Danny had been and how important he will be. We’re giving him an opportunity now and he has the chance to get games. We’re hoping his goals come as well. He had a couple of chances the other night. But it would be worse if he wasn’t getting chances. Hopefully he’ll start taking a few of those chances and that will give him the confidence he needs to go on a run and score plenty of goals,” said Moyes.
