Sunderland star ‘next Andy Carroll’

Published Add your comment

Sunderland striker Danny Welbeck wants to be the next Andy Carroll, as the 20 year old goes from strength to strength on loan with the Black Cats.

“I played with Andy Carroll with England Under-19s. I was the year below him when I went there, he had one of the best games I have seen him play, so I have been impressed.” Welbeck told The Journal.

“He has made enormous progress.”


Welbeck has been on loan at Sunderland from Manchester United since August last year, and has impressed Black Cats manager Steve Bruce on many fronts. The striker hit back at critics who say Andy Carroll has only impressed because he stood out in the Championship flight.

“The Championship is a different game. There’s an argument his style is suited to the Championship more than the Premier League, but he has been knocking players around in this division and scoring goals. That’s good for him.”

Welbeck is drawing inspiration from Carroll’s experiences at Newcastle, with Carroll heading to Preston on loan to get more game time in 2007-08. Welbeck also went to Preston on loan, towards the end of last season.

“There’s loads of young players at big clubs who do not get the opportunities, when they go out to different teams on loan it helps them.

“Andy played in the Championship, week in, week out and it helped him at Newcastle and playing regularly here has helped me.”
