Danny Welbeck has revealed the Arsenal star whom he was not the best of friends with prior to his move to north London.
The 26-year-old completed a switch to the Emirates stadium in the summer of 2014 after spending much of his career at Manchester United.
And according to Welbeck, he was not always fond of Kieran Gibbs due to the full-back’s playing style in previous clashes.
“I was speaking to Gibbo and Ox about it not long ago at all, talking about Gibbo being a flying left winger. I hated coming up against him. It was mad” Welbeck said
“I knew everything about their team, they knew everything about us. I was only 15, Gibbo was 16 I think. It was a mad time.
“Then, me and Gibbo disliked each other. Playing against him I thought ‘I don’t like this guy’. But now we’re proper close, we’re good friends so it’s crazy how things change.”
