Manchester United fans across the globe were in fine fettle today, with the Red Devils finally returning to action after a six-week break.
In a game against Perth Glory, United were always going to be favourites. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded two completely different starting line-ups in each half and it was great to get a good look at everyone.
For me, the standout performer was Daniel James. From minute one, the Wales international lit up the game with his insane piece and excellent crossing ability. He also worked tirelessly on both sides of the ball throughout his 45 minutes.
After the game, James took to Twitter to send a message to the fans; expressing his delight at making his Manchester United debut.
Us United supporters are pretty easily pleased provided the effort and intensity is there, and it was an absolute treat to watch this young man wear our badge with pride this afternoon.
Yes, it was only a pre-season game, but we’ve seldom seen the correct attitude displayed over the last twelve months and James was brilliant in that regard.
You get the feeling that the fans are going to adore this young man, who is a potential superstar in the making…
