Welbeck hits back at Moyes criticism

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has dismissed claims from former manager David Moyes that he did not train hard enough, BBC Sport has reported.

Moyes, who was sacked in April after failing to lead the defending Premier League champions to a place in the top four, revealed in December that he had to tell Welbeck to put in some extra training.


"We had a word with Welbeck about a month ago and we said that he needs to be the last off the training field,’ said Moyes . "Wayne Rooney's out there practising his finishing each day. I said: 'Danny, you need to be out there every day finishing, even if it's 15 minutes at the end'."


Welbeck often found himself as third choice striker during the season, as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie were generally preferred when fit. However, his 36 appearances and 10 goals were enough to earn him a place in the England squad for this summer’s World Cup alongside Rooney.


But in response to Moyes’ claims, the 23-year-old’s reaction was one of surprise. He said: "I was pretty surprised at that to be honest. Before he made that statement I was doing extra training. Maybe he just didn't see it. It's born and bred in me to do extra work after training and maybe he wasn't seeing that extra stuff. I was doing extras in the gym and on the pitch."
