Wayne Rooney has admitted his former team-mate Danny Welbeck made the right decision leaving Manchester United for Arsenal this summer.

Welbeck has impressed since completing a £16million deadline-day move to The Gunners in September, with the striker scoring five goals for the north London outfit in all competitions so far and a further five for England.

With Welbeck set to take on his former side when Arsenal host The Red Devils on Saturday, Rooney has revealed his belief that the 23-year-old forward chose the right club to continue his career at.

When asked if it would be strange playing against Welbeck at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, Rooney told MUTV: ‘Of course, Danny has been here all of his life.

‘He is a Manchester lad so it is weird seeing him [there]. But that’s football nowadays and players move on.

‘I think, for Danny, and for his own personal career, it was probably the best move for him.

‘He’s done great and scored a few goals and is playing well. Danny gives you what he always gives you – a good shift. He works hard for the team.

‘At times, as I said to him, he works a bit too hard but he’s scoring goals and he’s doing well.’
