Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has promised fans that striker Danny Welbeck still has a vital role to play in the club’s season despite being dropped for the previous two games against Everton and QPR, the Daily Express reports.
The England international has bagged himself seven goals since joining the club from Manchester United last summer in a £16m deal.
Many were concerned when he arrived, conscious that the 24-year-old hadn’t lived up to his enormous potential at Old Trafford, though Wenger has insisted that he still has it all to play for at the Emirates.
“If you check the statistics that is a wrong statement. He is one of the players who played the most games for us,” Wenger said.
“He is very important to the team.
“Danny has played many, many games since the start of the season, playing in nearly every single game.
“His position is one of the three up front, central or on either flank – he can play anywhere.
“I believe that Danny puts a lot of effort in for the team. He plays very well and he is an exceptional football player. I’m very, very happy that I bought him and I think he has a great future at Arsenal.”
