Danny Welbeck Inspired by Robin van Persie

Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck

Welbeck: Robin inspires me

Danny Welbeck says he is as much a beneficiary of Robin van Persie’s form as Manchester United.

Van Persie has been a revelation since joining the Reds in the summer, netting 13 goals in 19 appearances so far. While his arrival has had an impact on Welbeck’s opportunities in the first team, the Manchester-born striker believes being able to learn from one of the world’s best can only have a positive effect on his game.

“It’s a great motivation to see somebody with so much class come into the side and score goals,” said Danny at Tuesday’s press conference for the Cluj match. “But it’s not just his goals that have been pleasing – it’s the way he’s played all round and the assists he’s got.

“Robin’s a world-class striker and that’s of great benefit to me, as I can watch him week in and week out. He’s someone I can look up to.

“He’s a different type of striker to what we’ve previously had at the club. You can look at his qualities and the things you can take into your own game. I’ll keep watching him so I can take a leaf out of his book in some areas.”
