Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that summer signing Daniel James has proven himself ready for the club.
“You could see it meant the world to him,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “He’s had a summer of mixed emotions and experiences. You could see the way he celebrated, he’s been wanting that.
“I know for a fact after talking to him that it meant a lot for him. Since Daniel came in, he has proved to everyone that he is the type of player we want. He’s so hard-working. I think he set the standard straight away.”
“On his first day, he made a recovery run that was a fifty-yard run,” he continued. “He won the ball, played it out to a team-mate, ran forward, had a chance blocked, won it back and within 10 seconds had scored. Everyone was saying, ‘Yeah, that’s the boy we want in our team’.”
