Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has said that Danny Welbeck has been the best player for the club this season.

Danny Welbeck returned from a loan spell at Sunderland with his future unsure at one of the best clubs in England.

However, he has been able to use his exceptional pace to great effect, as he has been able to keep players like Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov out of the team. United are looking on course to lift their record 20th Premier league title. Regardless of whether they lift the Premier league title or not, Wayne Rooney has said that Danny Welbeck receives his vote as the Player of the Season.

Danny Welbeck was highly rated within Manchester United, but was unable to get first team opportunities last season. Hence, he went to Sunderland where he performed brilliantly under Steve Bruce. His impact at Sunderland has been so brilliant that Steve Bruce struggled to replicate the same success from last season, which ultimately led to his sacking.

Since his return to Manchester United, Danny Welbeck has formed a quite impressive partnership with England striker Wayne Rooney. It is some praise to receive from Wayne Rooney, who is one of the best players in the world and who has scored 28 goals for United this season.

"There are a few candidates for Player of the Season, but I'd have to say Welbeck. Danny's been brilliant and has spent a lot of time working on his finishing which has paid off. I think he'll become a great player, not just for United but for England as well. He brings a lot of energy to the team. He works very hard and always has defenders on the back foot, which is great for me as it gives me space to get on the ball," Rooney told The Mirror.
