Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed Gabriel Obertan after the Frenchman struck the winner in the side’s 1-0 win over Philadelphia Union. Ferguson is hoping that the goal, and Obertan’s good performance, will help the winger’s confidence ahead of the new season.

"Goals always help players and, of course, when they are forwards in particular." Feguson told the club’s official website.

"There is a goal in Gabby, there’s no question of that. The best aspect of his strike was his run, the timing of it and the timing and weight of the pass [from Danny Welbeck]. It was a good move and Gabby took it really well."

Ferguson will be counting on players like Obertan and Welbeck to come up with the goods this season. The Man Utd boss does not appear to be in the market for any big-name players and has instead declared himself happy with his current squad.
