Danny Welbeck is a future Manchester United star. He is 21 years old and is one to look out for. Here, we look at Danny and see if he can become our very own Didier Drogba.
Drogba, a legend at Chelsea FC due to his ability to score in every important game, to carry the team on his broad shoulders and to work his socks off for the team’s sake. Danny, like Didier in his heyday, is quick. His pace is his biggest allied strength. He is tall and needs to build his muscles so that he becomes a stocky target man who can brush of opponents better.
Danny is an intelligent striker. He links up very well with Wayne Rooney and is smart in his movements. The only place where he is lacking is in his finishing. He can be rather wasteful and so needs to learn fast that he won’t get 6-7 chances every game to score goals. Drogba scores off the only chance he gets. Examples of this were his goal against Liverpool a few years ago when Chelsea won 1-0 and against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.
Danny, like Didier, can hold the ball well. That is a good asset to have. This way, he can bring others like Nani, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young and Rooney into the play. Defenders won’t be able to take the ball off of him and so would have to think of alternate ways to stop him and subsequently the others from scoring.
Danny has pace, strength, intelligence. He just needs to build up his body so that he can get the requisite strength to be a full on target man for club and country. If he can work hard on his game, he, in the next two seasons may well be the best English striker of his generation. Big words yes but definitively possible!
