Arsenal’s injured star Theo Walcott has said that his new teammate Danny Welbeck will definitely play better for the north London club than he did for his boyhood club Manchester United, and thinks his manager will get more out of him than his previous bosses did, as reported by the Daily Star.
Walcott praised Welbeck, who he has played with before for the England national team, and said that he is a good person to have on your side, both on and off the pitch.
Despite the £16 million star being previously managed by Alex Ferguson, who is regarded as one of the best managers of all time, Walcott thinks that Arsene Wenger will get even more out of him.
He said: “He’s going to be better for us than he was at Man Utd, definitely.
“He’ll get more opportunities and he’s got a point to prove.
“I know he’s worked hard and he’s still very young, and I think the boss will enjoy working with him.
“The fans definitely will [enjoy watching him] – he’s very exciting and he’s very strong.
“I’ve worked with Danny for England and we link up very well.
“He’s another English guy and we’ve got a good English core now. He’s a very good guy and a very hard worker.
“Off the pitch he’s very relaxed and likes to get involved in anything.
“He fits perfectly into Arsenal, which is such a big family club where everyone’s together. He’ll fit straight in here.”
A deadline day move saw Welbeck move from Old Trafford, where he began his career, and join the Emirates Stadium club on a five year deal. Many Man Utd heroes of the past have questioned the sale, as have fans.
