Arsenal Manager has revealed the reason he picked goal scorer Danny Welbeck for Leicester City clash last weekend, .
The manager said in his pre match press conference before the game against the Foxes that the England striker could be available for this weekend’s game against Hull City but ruled out the possibility of him featuring against Leicester. To the surprise of many, the striker was included on the bench against Leicester City and Wenger has revealed the reason he picked the striker for last weekend’s game.
Wenger said: “On Saturday. In the last two days before the game he was convincing in training.
“I planned at the start, when I made my press conference on Friday morning, to play him this week (against Hull).
“But in the last two training sessions he was very strong and I decided just in the end to include him in the squad.”
Wenger is however happy with his decision to include the striker in his match day squad and introduced him in the game despite just returning from a lengthy spell of injury.
“Yes, but it was a great decision because Danny Welbeck is a great player, and you never know in our job if somebody else had come on would he have scored or not.
“But everybody is extremely happy for him, because he has been out for 10 months, that is an eternity for a player.
“We work very hard, our medical team, our fitness team, to bring him back so strong.
“Let’s not forget he has not played one minute for us, he has just played 45 minutes in the Under-21s.”
