“It’s always a proud moment to pull on the shirt especially given the fact I’m a Manchester boy,” said Welbeck. “I’ve supported the club all my life and to have come through the ranks and got into the first-team is a real privilege and honour. This club has so much history and there have been so many fantastic memories created by the players who have represented this club, past and present. It’s just great to be part of it.”
