Manchester United fans didn’t know what to expect when they signed Daniel James from Swansea City over the summer.
Let’s be honest, the extent of our knowledge (myself included) was that this young man is extremely quick and direct in terms of his play.
Well, we’re all learning just how incredibly talented this young winger is. Not only does he have freakish speed, but the footballing brain is there for all to see.
Attitude. That’s the word I’d use to best describe James. He always gives the maximum for the team and several members of the playing squad should be looking at following his lead.
As you’d imagine, the United fans were absolutely loving the performance of the 21-year-old in the first half, so we’ve compiled some of the best reactions below:
Spurs kicked lumps out of the lad for 45 minutes and what did James do? Got back up and continued to terrorise them with his skills.
This lad is already well on his way to becoming a cult hero with the fans, and he more than deserves all the plaudits that are coming his way after another great display.
For me, he’s already played his way into the starting line-up for the Premier League opener against Chelsea – most notably due to his brilliant effectiveness when executing the high press.
