Ferguson calls for Welbeck to be patient at Man Utd

Sir Alex Ferguson has asked Danny Welbeck to be patient after the England striker dropped to fourth place in the pecking order of Manchester United forwards, the Daily Mail has reported.

Danny Welbeck

The manager has most often relied on the pairing of Wayne Rooney and summer signing from Arsenal, Robin van Persie, while against Aston Villa last week it was Javier Hernandez to whom Ferguson turned in an effort to change the game. The Mexico striker was introduced at half-time, scored twice and almost claimed a hat-trick as United came from two goals down to beat Villa 3-2.

That performance is likely to be enough to convince Ferguson to start with Hernandez against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday, with Welbeck again likely to be a substitute despite featuring regularly for England and impressing many observers - including, it seems, his manager at club level.

Ferguson, who accepts that Welbeck will not be happy at playing fourth fiddle as most strikers would react the same way, added: “Our squad is stronger this year. We are also benefiting from the experience the younger players have picked up.

Danny’s best form has been for England. Though he hasn’t always had the opportunity to play centre-forward for us, that will come.
