Paul Scholes Reveals The Difference Between Arsenal Forward And Manchester United Forward

Paul Scholes believes that there is a lot to Danny Welback’s overall game rather than just scoring goals. The Manchester United legend claims that Welbeck is much different compared to Andy Cole and Ruud van Nistelrooy, who had their best years at Old Trafford.


Scholes heaped praise on the Arsenal striker, who left United on Deadline Day pucrhase (£16 million move) saying that Welbeck works very hard at his overall game, unlike Cole and Van Nistelrooy who concentrated solely on their goal scoring abilities.

Scholes wote in his columns in London Evening Standard, “For Danny, being a striker has always been about much more than just scoring goals. He works very hard at linking the play. His mentality is not that a striker’s job begins and ends with scoring goals.”

Scholes also mentions that Welbeck is the kind of player you would want to have in your team and he is someone who hits the training ground hard in every session back doors. Scholes also mentions about Welbeck’s raw pace something which neither Cole or Nistelrooy had. This was crucial to his hattrick against Turkish opponents Galatasaray in the Champions League group encounter in midweek.

United face Everton at Old Trafford in the early kick-off on Sunday, while Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea just two hours later. Can Welbeck grab the occasion by the scruff off the neck?
