WELBECK ASKED ABOUT GREENWOOD AND RASHFORD COMPARISONS
Former Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck was asked recently about comparisons between the club's current crop of forwards in Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood and responded by saying he is just happy he is back playing football and wishes to continue that way.
Welbeck is a former United youth player who rose through the ranks at the Old Trafford academy but moved on in his career after first joining Arsenal since his exit from United. The Englishman has had to endure a few seasons down with several I juries, including an ankle sprain that disturbed his Arsenal Career in the 2018/19 season.
He played for Watford last season but also could not find his goal-scoring touch but having moved to Brighton and Hive Albion ahead of the current campaign, he is beginning to gather some confidence after scoring two goals in eight games so far.
Before his exit from United and his move to Arsenal in 2014, Welbeck played in a total of 92 games for the Red Devils but was not able to nail down a starting berth at the Manchester-based club.
He was in an interview with Sky Sports recently and was asked whether he would have had a different career - something close to what Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are currently having at United - had it not been for the niggling injuries that curtailed his Red Devils career. He added that it is a part of the game that players should get injured. He said sometimes in life, things don't go according to how people plan them, and one just must deal with all of those scenarios.
He said despite injuries, a player's determination to always come back stronger and make more statements is what defines him at the end of his career and that's what he's trying to do ad Brighton.
