Particularly as Danny Welbeck has the opportunity to work with and learn on daily basis from three proven International class strikers at United.

 

Perseverance is the key for Welbeck as he is at least 6 years away from his prime age to be classed as a deadly finisher, unlike Welbeck’s peers Rooney and van Persie who are hardened matured goal scorers.

 

The manager has fantastic options in the spear – head attackers, with 4 brilliant alternatives at his disposal .Only Hernandez the player who does not have the flexibility of Rooney, van Persie and Welbeck to add variety in his playing position being an out and out centre forward solely.
