Manchester-born Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has been getting a bit of stick for hanging out with England’s southern players on international duty.
Prior to the Three Lions’ Euro 2016 qualifier with Estonia on Sunday, Gunners teammate Kieran Gibbs was quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: “Danny’s made the switch from the northern table to the southern table at dinners and stuff.
“He’s getting a bit of stick from the northern boys but, he’s been properly welcomed to the south.”
