Danny Welbeck has sung the praises of his strike partner, Wayne Rooney, claiming that money couldn’t buy the advice he’s been given.

“I owe Wayne a lot,” said Welbeck. “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. I’m so lucky he wants me to do well and is always trying to advise what’s best for me. You can’t buy that sort of insight. He knows what it’s like as a young player coming through in the Premier League and with England.”
