Press conference

'Danny is working with commitment and quality'

Unai Emery hailed Danny Welbeck after seeing the forward net his third and fourth goals of the season against Brentford.

The England international has been in fine form for club and country so far this season, and this is what our head coach said to the media after the game.

on Welbeck's displays… 
I am very happy individually with the player. He gave us his quality and also his commitment every day. Danny Welbeck is working with this commitment and when he is playing also with a performance like today, and I think he’s helping the team and we want this. Also, it’s more chances for us to find the first XI for the next matches with performances like today’s.

on Welbeck’s contract running out and his importance going forward…
There are three things when we are speaking about an individual. There’s the club, the player and the team, and my focus is the team. I know they have last year of their contract with the team and they are working on speaking with the club, but for me, the focus is only on the performance in each match and every training. The performance and the commitment of the player is very high and also Danny Welbeck’s situation is one thing for the club and for them.

on whether he wants Danny to stay...
I am very happy with Danny Welbeck.
