Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Danny Welbeck can offer a lot to the England national side, if he is picked for the World Cup in Russia. The 27-year-old has endured an injury-plagued spell during his time at the Emirates, but he has found form at the right time with five goals in as many games for the Gunners.
Speaking to reporters, Wenger highlighted Welbeck’s versatility on the playing field, and feels the Englishman can present an impressive choice for Gareth Southgate, he said: “For Danny, it has been very good recently because he got games. If Danny is injury-free, he is a very good player. We spoke many times about Danny when he was regularly in the national team. He was a very good player.At the moment everybody is talking about [Harry] Kane and rightly so. But there is room for Welbeck [in the England lineup]. If you are national coach, what for me is very interesting is that he can play wide – on the right, on the left – and also central. He can play with anybody.” (more…)
