FOOTBALL: Welbeck would walk into this Manchester United side, says Scholes


Paul Scholes has hit out at Manchester United’s decision to sell Danny Welbeck to Arsenal, claiming that the striker would now be a huge asset to Louis van Gaal’s side.
The Old Trafford outfit were dumped out of the Europa League by Liverpool on Thursday, and their former midfielder launched another attack on those running the club for their short-sighted approach that has diverged from the traditional values of the side.
"He [Welbeck] would walk into this team, without a shadow of a doubt and he’s just been allowed to go," the Red Devils legend told BT Sport.
"Every time I watch United I keep thinking of the players that have been allowed to leave the club. You’re scratching your head. I think Welbeck is the biggest example of that, he should have never, ever been allowed to leave this club.
"He’s a big example of what Manchester United are, he was here from nine years of age and came right through to the first team. He’s quick, he’s strong, can score a goal, can make a goal, can play left wing, can play right wing.

"Whether that’s come from the manager or beyond I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure it probably did come from the manager. It should never ever have been allowed to happen."
The 25-year-old striker has played only eight times for the Gunners this season due to injury, scoring three times.
