Man Utd matchwinner Welbeck: I'm just normal local lad

Danny Welbeck shrugged off his matchwinning heroics for Manchester United after their Carling Cup win over Wolves.

The 18 year-old striker told MUTV: "I'm just like any other normal Manc boy, really.

"To be given the chance to play for United is a dream, and I'm always willing to go when asked. I need to carry on training hard and get more first team chances.

"That's all of the young boys' aim. We're just looking forward to the next round now, so just play as many youngsters as possible, Fergie!

"I thought we did really well to be fair, being down to 10 men for an hour. We went one upfront so I was playing as a left winger- striker kind of role. I just had to get used to the game, get a few more touches on the ball and then the goal came, so I was pleased with that."
