Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has said that he owes a lot to Wayne Rooney for performing so well in all competitions this season. Danny Welbeck was returning to Manchester United after a loan spell with Sunderland, which was extremely successful.

However, he still says that he was in limbo over his Manchester United career due to the presence of players like Dimitar Berbatov and Hernandez. The Mexican was coming into the season after having scored more than 20 goals last season, while Dimitar Berbatov was the top scorer for United. However, Welbeck has struck an impressive partnership with Wayne Rooney, which has resulted in a number of goals for Manchester United.

The youth team product has now been named in the Euro 2012 squad by England manager Roy Hodgson. He says that a lot of the success this season is due to the mentoring by Wayne Rooney. The 26-year-old striker is regarded as one of the best in the business, but Welbeck says that he has never had the huge egos and has always provided him with a helping hand when he needed the most. Danny Welbeck has also said that Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand congratulate him for making it into the Euro 2012, despite his omission from the squad.

"I owe Wayne a lot. He has been a terrific friend and a brilliant help to me. We have really forged a great partnership. And he is amazing during a game. He never stops yapping in my ear, telling me, 'Daniel this' and 'Daniel that'. Wayne's funny like that, he calls me Daniel on the pitch, even though most people call me Danny. Yet off the pitch it's Danny or Welbz. Don't ask me why," said Danny Welbeck at the joy of making it as a Manchester United first-team player.
