Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that teenage striker Danny Welbeck will be considered a first team squad member for the rest of the season.

The highly rated 17-year-old made an impressive cameo appearance against Al-Hilal earlier this week, catching the eye sufficiently to provide further reinforcements in the Reds' senior squad.

"We brought young Welbeck into the squad for the trip to Saudi and he did very well. He will stay with the first team squad now," revealed Sir Alex.

"He's no doubt a Manchester United player, the boy, but he's only young, he's only 17. He needs time, like they all do, and he needs a bit of strength.

"But he's got a lot of marvellous things about him. He's a local boy, which is nice too, it's nice to get a local boy in."

Sir Alex also revealed that Welbeck's ascension to the first team setup has been hastened by United's shock exit from the FA Youth Cup.

"We knew about him, but while the Youth Academy Team were still in the FA Youth Cup, we left him alone, but now they're out of the Cup he joins us," he said.

"He'll be a nice wee addition, I think he'll get involved once or twice as the season goes on."

Just not too long ago, we were all moaning and mourning about having only 2 fit strikers and 1 shadow striker..:(

And out of the blue, we have an Angolan and now this promotion of Welbeck. :)

Suddenly, the department looks a bit crowded instead.:eek:

Lol.:D
