Welbeck targets regular Man Utd role

The 19-year-old has made several impressive performances and has been hailed by manager Sir Alex Ferguson as one for the future.

Welbeck told United’s official website: “Obviously I’m just working hard on my game, and I’m trying to become a regular squad member.

“At the moment that’s all I’m thinking about. I’m trying to improve my all-round game and I’ve still got time on my hands, I’ve only just turned 19, so I’m taking it step by step. Hopefully, though, one day I’ll be where you say.”
