Former-Manchester United captain Bryan Robson has criticised the decision to sell Danny Welbeck to Arsenal during the summer transfer window.
The England international, who scored two in his country's 2-0 victory over Switzerland in their first European Championship qualifying match, was sold by Louis van Gaal to Arsenal for £16m on transfer deadline day.
But Robson, who led England and Manchester United, believes Van Gaal made the wrong decision on this occasion.
"I think United added some quality players and allowed the right people to go - apart from Danny," Robson said.
"That is the only one I thought I wouldn't have made. I would have liked to have seen Danny still a United player. He is not an out-and-out goalscorer but he has other attributes and I think it is a great signing by Arsenal."
The 23-year-old capped a memorable England performance with two breakaway goals to secure three points for Roy Hodgson's side.
It was a timely riposte to those Manchester United fans who believed Welbeck lacked the natural goalscoring instinct required to play through the middle for the club.
Man United transfer news
After van Gaal signed Radamel Falcao in a deadline day loan deal, it was clear to Welbeck that he would not be getting his opportunity in a central role for United this upcoming season.
Instead, he would likely have spent his time on the flanks, a position he has also occupied for England in the past. But through the middle, where he wants to play for Arsenal, Welbeck put in a superb performance.
With Olivier Giroud out injured until December at the earliest, Welbeck should get plenty of chances to impress Arsene Wenger in his favoured position. The other options for the Frenchman seem to be Yaya Sanogo, who has struggled so far, and new signing Alexis Sanchez, who hasn't played through the middle on a regular basis since his time in Italy.
