Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with Danny Welbeck after his goalscoring performance at Real Madrid.

Ferguson could not have been happier with the striker's contribution on Wednesday night.

"He was marvellous," said Ferguson. "It is a pity he got cramp at the end of game, but he worked so hard.

"It was only second goal of season. We expected more, but he is young.

"They found it difficult to handle him."
