Manchester United starlet Danny Welbeck ready to pounce on striking opportunity

Manchester United and England striker, Danny Welbeck, has stamped his club intentions, saying that he’s ready to be a part of the next generation of home-grown talent at Old Trafford.

The forward has beaten out the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen to a starting place recently, and is repaying his manager handsomely for the faith he has shown in him.

Welbeck’s latest contribution was a brace in the 3-3 Champions League draw against Basel on Tuesday night.

Despite putting his side two goals up, United were unable to defend the lead and only clinched a point in the dying minutes of the game, thanks to an Ashley Young header.

Speaking on the game, the 20 year-old said: “To score those two goals was a bittersweet moment for me. To get two Champions League goals, I am buzzing about that, but we didn’t get the win we should have done.”

Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez are both on the injury list at the moment, and after recovering from a hamstring strain, the youngster is keen to capitalize on the gap up front, noting: “I hope I have done enough to play against Norwich. We have some great strikers at the club and whoever is in there will give it 100 per cent. I just hope I get my chances.”
