It’s hard not to feel for Danny Welbeck.
His time at Arsenal so far has been marred by injuries and the most recent of which has kept him sidelined for months. However, the striker is still looking at the bright side and says having the opportunity to work under both Fergie and Wenger has been a huge honour.
“Both (managers) have that presence and both are legends in the modern game,” the England international said.
“What can I say? They have won plenty of trophies between them and I have worked under Sir Alex and Arsene Wenger and it is a great honour to say that, but I want to be the best that I can be.”
It’s true, not many players get to train under two of the Premier League’s best managers and although the 25-year-old has only managed to feature 34 times since joining us in 2014, hopefully he has many more years to prove himself.
As fans, it’s difficult to know exactly how players who spend long stints on the sidelines feel. However, it must be massively disheartening, especially for a player like Welbeck who moved from his boyhood club to get more time on the pitch.
It’s good to see he’s remaining reasonably positive and is looking forward to returning to us. Hopefully it’s not too long before he does.
