Wayne Rooney says Manchester United teammate Danny Welbeck can be happy with his season.

Welbeck has not started as many games as he would have liked this term.

But Rooney said: "Everyone labels him as a striker, which I have had at times when I have played in different positions.

"Then someone says I haven't scored for eight games when I hadn't played up front.

"Danny has been out wide a lot this season. He works hard and brings a lot of energy to the team.

"He is a great player and his time will come when he gets that run up front. Then I am sure he will score goals."
