Leaving Manchester United was the right decision says Danny Welbeck.

Danny Welbeck reveals that he decided to leave Manchester United to join Arsenal because it was the best decision for his football career.

The 23-year-old moved to the Emirates on the transfer deadline day as Manchester United landed Radamel Falcao on a one-year loan deal from AS Monaco, with an option to buy at the end of the loan period.

The England international has scored five goals and given one assist since his move to the Emirates and Welbeck has explained the reason why he decided to quit his childhood club.

“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 is quoted saying by TheSportreview.

“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.”
