Man Utd boss Ferguson laughs off Welbeck's international dilemma

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has laughed off Danny Welbeck's international dilemma.

The attention on Welbeck has only increased because Ghana have made a bid for his services.

Capped by England at Under-19 level, Welbeck could continue along the Three Lions path or choose to represent the country of his parents.

Ferguson has offered some sound advice - ignore both and play for Scotland instead.

"His parents are from Ghana so it is not a surprise," he reflected.

"It is the boy's choice, although I would be surprised if he didn't play for Scotland. That is my big challenge now."
