Danny Welbeck is a born and bred Mancunian, and on Monday we were all gutted to hear that Manchester United had agreed a deal to sell the Longsight-lad to Arsenal. However, a couple of days later, Manchester United fans aren’t happy with Danny Welbeck, after he admitted he has ‘envisaged’ playing for Arsenal before.
First of all, its worth noting that this interview was conducted by Arsenal’s official website.
Welbeck said: “I’ve envisaged myself playing in this team before. For it to finally happen is very exciting.”
These comments haven’t sat well with United fans so far, but to me it seems like a PR stunt by Arsenal. The Gunners are our direct rivals, and they obviously aren’t going to let him pro his heart out about how much he loves United.
The more concerning thing for me is that he didn’t thank United or the fans for their support over the years. Everyone at United wanted Welbeck to do well, but he simply didn’t score enough goals; Something that Rooney, Van Persie and Falcao will all guarantee.
