Man Utd striker Welbeck: Being Man City reject makes derby special

Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck admits he could've been lining up in Blue tomorrow night for Manchester City.

The England striker tried out for the Blues as a youngster and was rejected.

But luckily for him, United saw his potential and snapped him up.

Welbeck said: "I've been brought up on Manchester derbies and they are always special to me, particularly as I was on trial at City when I was younger but didn't get taken on."
