Danny Welbeck: Why I had to leave Manchester United

Friday, November 14, 2014

Former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck admits his desire to be used as an out-and-out frontman played a major role in his decision to join Arsenal.

New United manager Louis van Gaal deemed Welbeck not good enough to have a future with the Red Devils and shunted him off to Arsenal in a £16 million switch on the final day of the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a productive start to life at Arsenal and notably scored his first professional hat-trick in the 4-1 Champions League victory over Galatasaray.

Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger has deployed Welbeck in a central striking role, something which had consistently eluded him at Old Trafford.

"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," Welbeck told Arsenal.com

"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 percent 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."
