The Manchester United boss stands by his decision to sell the United Academy product, who grew up in Longsight, just four miles away from Old Trafford.

He said: “We have Van Persie and (James) Wilson, and when you keep Welbeck, you don’t give any chances to youngsters. That’s also our philosophy, to give opportunities to youngsters.

“And then also we could buy Falcao. So (if) that is not enough reason, then I don’t know – I’m not a very good manager.

“For him it was a very good decision because as a line-up player he develops himself much more.

“If it was right for Manchester United is dependable on how they play, how they score and in what position we shall finish in the league.”
