Wenger can be new Henry – Neville

Share This

Gary Neville believes Arsene Wenger will help turn Danny Welbeck into an exceptional talent like Thierry Henry and has warned Chelsea to be wary of the Arsenal hat-trick hero. The former Manchester United defender has backed the Frenchman to have a similar effect on the England striker as he did with the Gunners legend.

Welbeck netted three times in a convincing 4-1 victory over Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night as Wenger celebrated 18 years in charge of the Gunners. And Neville, Welbeck’s former Manchester United team-mate, has backed Wenger to get a “bagful of goals” out of the striker ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“I think it’s consistency for Danny, consistency in a number of areas,” Neville said. “He’s unplayable at times, he’s a nightmare. He plays against John Terry and Gary Cahill on Sunday – they will not want to play against him. He’s quick, he’s strong, it’s just the last bit has got to be delivered more consistently. “It was top centre-forward play tonight and if he can get goals more consistently to his game you have got a real top-class centre-forward there.

“What Arsene Wenger did when Thierry Henry came to Arsenal, people forget at Monaco. I played against him as a 17-year-old, he was very raw, he played as a left winger… in fact his control was poor, he wasn’t a goalscorer in those early years, however when he went to Arsenal it just completely took off for him.
