Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has said that he expects striker Danny Welbeck to be a major success for Manchester United this season. The 21-year-old star has become a real striker for Manchester United ever since the one season loan deal with Sunderland under manager Steve Bruce.

Since then, he has been able to keep out the likes of Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov out of the first team action. Even though it remains to be seen if he considers his future at Manchester United for the foreseeable future, Andy Cole reckons that he can be a great player in the future.

The former Manchester United striker is the last one of the most successful with the Red Devils over the last two decades after having lifted numerous titles, while also forming a deadly partnership with Dwight Yorke. Many have seen the similarities of the partnership between Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole in the partnership between Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck. They both combined to great effect in the second half of last campaign and Ferguson will be hoping for the same. Danny Welbeck's contract, though, has been the cause of headaches for Sir Alex Ferguson because his deal comes to an end in two seasons.

"I love watching Danny play and people ask me a lot about him. Chicharito's injury last season gave Danny the chance to shine and he took that opportunity. He's done very well for himself. He got himself into the England squad and, again, he made the most of that chance. First and foremost, he's not let himself down at any stage. So this is going to be a big season for him. All I can say is that Danny has the attributes required to score plenty of goals," said Andy Cole in a recent interview.
