Manchester United's Danny Welbeck Welcomes Louis Van Gaal Appointment as Manager

London:

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck admits he is delighted by Louis van Gaal's appointment as Old Trafford boss after falling out of favour last season.


Welbeck considered leaving United after becoming frustrated at losing his place and then being played out of position by David Moyes on the rare occasions he did make the starting line-up.

But with Moyes sacked towards the end of the season, Welbeck now has a chance to prove himself under van Gaal, and the United attacker is looking forward to working under the former Barcelona, Ajax and Bayern Munich coach next season.

"I heard the news (about Van Gaal's appointment) and I am happy," said Welbeck, who scored 11 times for United last year after starting just 24 matches in all competitions.

"He is a great man, a great manager. "Looking at his CV tells you he has managed at some big clubs." Current Holland coach van Gaal was named United boss on Monday, a month after Moyes was sacked.

The 62-year-old, who will be assisted by Ryan Giggs, will take over at Old Trafford when Holland's World Cup campaign ends.
