Daniel James has said he will continue to improve and try to convince Olé Gunnar Solskjaer to give him more game time, after having limited playing opportunities so far this season.

The winger has rarely played for Manchester United this season, making just 13 appearances for the Red Devils.

However, in the games he’s played, he’s been absolutely brilliant, especially in the last two against Real Sociedad and Newcastle, where he scored.

And according to Welsh star, he intends to give Solskjaer a selection headache by improving and training hard so the chances can keep coming.

Speaking to Man United’s official website recently, the Welshman noted, “All of us forward players have got to give him a headache with his decisions, and I think that’s what he wants as well.

“I haven’t played much recently but I’ve just been working hard on the training ground, doing the same things that I do all the time,” he added.

“I know the gaffer believes in me and trusts me when I play, so it’s just, as you said, taking all that stuff from training and what you’ve learned into a game.

“I think I’ll always be ready and I’m proud to play every time I put on the shirt. It’s great.”

Judging by stats, James has been one of our most prolific forward players this season, as he currently has a goals ratio of one per 92.5 minutes. He also has five goals this season. Not bad at all for someone who has only played 13 times.
