MAKING AN IMPACT
Since the arrival of David Moyes to Manchester United, complaints were made mostly by the players themselves as they insist on saying that the Scottish coach has implemented a tough training regime.
With the injury that that Dutchman Robin van Persie picked up some weeks ago, this has given the chance for Welbeck to step it up and claim a spot into the starting lineup of David Moyes. The English striker managed to score twice during Manchester United’s 3-0 victory against Aston Villa.
Welbeck also scored once when playing against West Ham and is quickly becoming an important figure for the team of David Moyes but the Englishman does not agree with the training style that Moyes utilizes even claiming that the recent number of players that have been injured in the team is due to the preparations and training style more than anything else.
David Moyes spoke to Welbeck saying that, about a month ago, he told the attacker to stay late for finishing practice. The United manager compared Welbeck to teammate Wayne Rooney, saying “Wayne’s out there practicing his finishing each day, whether it’s taking free-kicks, shooting from tight angles or bending them in, whatever it may be Wayne’s practicing. I said: ‘Danny, you need to be out there every day finishing, even if it’s 15 minutes at the end.’ “
Welbeck, however, insists he doesn’t need to be told to put in the extra time: “I have been doing that ever since I have been at United. Obviously I have been injured this season so maybe the manager has not seen me on the training pitch as much.”
The player that was on loan at Sunderland in 2010 suffered from a knee injury during Manchester United’s match against West Ham and was unclear whether or not he could be featured for the upcoming Premier League encounter against Hull City and according to the medical staff, he should be fit and ready to play.
