Welbeck hails his Manchester United team mate Rio Ferdinand – English Premier League by calling him a Rolls Royce of a defender in his latest interview to the media despite the fact that the former Leeds United centre
back has been left out of England’s squad for their upcoming EURO 2012 qualification encounters.
With the international break in place, Ferdinand can use this time to reflect on his future with the English national team, a team that he was set to captain at the FIFA 2010 World Cup until he suffered a knee injury in the lead
up to the tournament in due to Emile Heskey’s challenge on the training field. Rio has been since in and out of the English national team setup sometimes due to Capello’s insistence on giving a chance to some of the younger players in the setup
whilst other times because of his fitness issues.
The Manchester United defender played for them at the weekend against Norwich City in the second half and before that he was a part of the team that drew 3-3 at Old Trafford against F.C Basel in the UEFA Champions’ League group
stages. Welbeck scored against Norwich City but before that he was on the mark against Basel as well when he scored two outstanding goals at Old Trafford.
People have been quick to term Rio’s latest exclusion from the English national team squad as an end of his time with the Three Lions but Welbeck is insistent that his Manchester United still has a lot to offer. The young striker
stated in his recent interview, "We all know what capabilities he's got - he's a Rolls-Royce of a defender. It's wrong to write him off. We all know the ability he's got."
Welbeck also went onto speak about his partnership with as he said, "He's been on fire, he has started the season scoring goals and creating goals. To be training with him every day is a bonus and I'm going to learn
from him. He's a great guy to go to for advice, he's always talking to you during training and it's been really beneficial. Because we've been training together for a couple of years now it would work."
England’s first match of the upcoming international week is against Montenegro where they just need a draw to qualify for the European Championships of 2012 which are scheduled to be held in next summer. Welbeck
stated with regard to the match, "I don't think it would be right to go to and play for a point, our aim is to win every game we go into and I don't see why we can't do that”.
