Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with the attitude of Danny Welbeck.

Welbeck has already welcomed Robin van Persie’s arrival and while the Manchester-born youngster may not feature in every game this season, he’s certain to benefit in the long term by working alongside such a varied array of forwards.

Sir Alex said: "I saw his interview and it was very refreshing. He started talking about scoring more goals – I hope he's right!

"At 21 he's a young boy. He's still growing and has niggles, but he’s going to be a big boy. He won't play every week but when he's 23 or 24 he’ll be a fantastic player."
