Prodigious United talent hails Arsenal legend

10 July 2009

Manchester United starlet Danny Welbeck has revealed he has modelled his game on Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Welbeck told Inside United Magazine: “When I was younger my hero was Thierry Henry.”

“I just wanted to be doing the stuff he was doing, he was quality.”

In addition to selecting Arsenal’s record goalscorer, Welbeck mentioned a few other world stars.

He added: “I love Kaka, Rooney and Ronaldo as well. “

The England Under-21 international is expected to play a more prominent role for the English Champions next season, and Sir Alex Ferguson has even tipped the youngster to break into Fabio Capello’s squad in time for next year’s World Cup in South Africa.
