Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck makes dig at Man Utd treatment
Danny Welbeck says he is glad he left Manchester United and joined Arsenal after repeatedly being played out of position.
The England forward has enjoyed a new lease of life playing for the Gunners, where he has scored five goals since his deadline day switch.
And with the Red Devils landing Radamel Falcao on loan for the season, Welbeck realised he would struggle even more for game time at Old Trafford and says he has no regrets.
“When you’ve been somewhere for so long and then you’re going to start a new chapter in your career, you’ve got to think about it a lot,” he told Arsenal’s website.
“Over the past year or so, I started to think about what’s best for me because at the time I was playing on the left wing a lot and in a 4–4-2, which is very difficult for me because I can’t make an impact on the game.
“I can play it to the best of my ability but that’s not best for the team, and I could make a bigger impact playing in my preferred position (up front).
“You start to have thoughts but at that time you’re still going to training and I was still giving 100 per cent and giving my all in every single game – that’s just me, I’m not going to change that. But you do start to think about what’s best for you,” he added.
