England striker Daniel Welbeck will recover goalscoring form says Ferguson
Danny Welbeck has been backed to find his goalscoring form for Manchester United by boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
The England star has been used in a variety of roles at Old Trafford over the course of the season and has only scored two goals for the Reds after a return of 12 last season.
But Ferguson believes the best is yet to come from the 22-year-old, who has scored more goals for the Three Lions than he has for his club this campaign.
He told Inside United: "Last year he had 12 goals, this year he's only got two so that's a big drop.
"But that drop doesn't concern us because he still applies himself really well and still looks to score, still looks to get a chance and with that kind of courage he will eventually become a regular goalscorer.”
Welbeck has often had to sacrifice his own striking ambitions to feature in different positions for United as they stormed to a 13th Premier League title this season.
And Ferguson admits that Welbeck's versatility and willingness to work for the team is perhaps reflected by his return.
Ferguson admitted: "Maybe he doesn't appreciate us moving him around in various positions and we've maybe over-used that because he is young.
"But his value to the club is there because I know he can do a job for me in any of those positions.
"It's a fantastic asset when you have a player who is as adaptable as that.
"But I think he will find his role through the middle once he gets that maturity and gets into a more consistent way of scoring."
Welbeck will be hoping to be selected for England's games with Republic Of Ireland and Brazil at the end of May.
