Rio Ferdinand rues Manchester United selling Danny Welbeck to Arsenal
Danny Welbeck made a dramatic return to action to score the winning goal for Arsenal against Leicester and put the Gunners firmly back in the hunt for the Premier League title.
The England international has been out of action since April last year due to knee surgery, missing the entire season so far.
The former Manchester United player entered the fray in the top-of-the-table tussle for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the 83rd minute and managed to get on the scoresheet with just seconds remaining on the clock.
The £16m signing connected with Mesut Ozil's free-kick in the 95th minute with his deft header getting past Kasper Schmeichel and into the back of the net.
Arsenal fans went delirious, Twitter went into meltdown and Rio Ferdinand reflected on how Manchester United ever agreed to sell their youth product to the Gunners...

Welbeck got injured a year ago, came back for 10 minutes for 1 game and has more PL goals than Hazard.— Tom Gordon (@GoonerGordo) February 14, 2016
