Was Danny Welbeck sent to the reserves for Cantona celebration?
Fergie punishes cocky youngster with reserve match
Danny Welbeck has scored some pretty classy goals in his fledgling Manchester United career, including the one above against Derby County on Sunday, but apparently his celebrations have not been quite as impressive to Sir Alex Ferguson.
The 18-year-old was omitted from the squad for United’s midweek clash with Fulham and sent to play against Wigan Reserves instead. The Sun is reporting that Fergie was far from happy with Welbeck’s Cantona-esque celebration (see video above) against Derby. The youngster showed no emotion on his face but stood facing the fans with his arms back and his chest puffed out.
He proceeded to score two goals in a 5-4 win for the Reserves, but we don’t know how he celebrated them!
