Fergie not optimistic over Welbeck
Published : 12 Mar 2010 16:58:00
Welbeck suffered a reaction to the problem when training with parent club Manchester United this week having been pencilled in to return to Preston on Thursday. The young striker is now set for scans on his knee on Monday to determine the extent of the injury, with Ferguson unsure as to whether Wellbeck will return to Deepdale afterwards. "Danny has had a reaction to the knee injury again after he trained at United on Wednesday. The way it is looking at the moment, he will go back there and that will be it," he told the Lancashire Evening Post. "Danny is going for another scan on Monday but it's not looking good. It's a blow for the lad because he was really enjoying it here. "We wish the lad all the best because we don't want this to turn out to be a serious injury. If the scan on Monday shows no operation is needed, there is the possibility that Danny might come back, but I'm not overly optimistic."
