England striker Danny Welbeck agreed to play for the Black Stars after talks with Asamoah Gyan during his time on loan at Sunderland, says Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
According to him, Welbeck decided to change his mind at the eleventh hour after former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson threatened to end his career with the Red Devils.
“Look, Asamoah Gyan singlehandedly was able to convince Danny Welbeck to come and play for Ghana. Danny Welbeck agreed to play for Ghana,” Kwaku Yeboah said, as quoted by Pulse.
“Asamoah said a day before the boy decided officially, Sir Alex Fergusson heard about it and threatened him not to play for Ghana because that would be the end of his Manchester United career.”
Welbeck played 42 matches for England, scoring 16 goals, and also featured at Euro 2012, and the 2014 and 2018 World Cup tournaments.
