Ferguson likens Man Utd kid Wellbeck to Kanu

Manchester United are expecting big things from teenage attacker Danny Wellbeck.

He has been likened by Sir Alex Ferguson to former Arsenal forward Nwankwo Kanu for his manner of play.

"He's got a smooth and languid style," Paul McGuinness, his coach at Under-18 level, told manutd.com. "But don't let that fool you, it sometimes disguises the fact that he is a really hard worker.

"Danny is a very talented and skilful player with good all-round technique. He's strong, quick, good defensively as well as going forward, and he's a real leader, too. He is a good personality to have around the dressing room."
