Daniel James was the biggest talking point for the Manchester United supporters following their first pre-season fixture of the new campaign.

The brand new summer signing started the game against Perth Glory, and was a consistent threat down the left wing throughout the first 45 minutes.

His pace, work ethic, and overall performance also won him the Man of the Match award, and fans simply cannot wait to see him in action again.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also left impressed by the Welshman, labeling the young talent as an ‘exciting’ prospect.

Speaking about James’ display after the game, Ole stated: “He started well. It was a good start and we will nurture him. It will be exciting to watch him play many games.”

Further, the 21-year-old himself shed light on the instructions given to him by the Norwegian tactician before the game.

“There were quite a few times I got in behind, that’s what we want to do,” James told MUTV during his post-match interview.

“We want to try and get in behind the opposition not just play in front, and that’s what the gaffer has speaking to me a lot about doing that.”
