Daniel James has been a superb signing for Manchester United so far this season. The very fact that he arrived from a Championship side and for a comparatively lower fee has meant that even the smallest of achievements have taken on a great quality.
Fans have been particularly impressed by his electric pace and the knack of repeatedly feeding balls into the box, be it through crosses, deft passes, or well-envisioned long balls.
Now, the Welsh international has specifically opened up about that particular ploy and has singled out how he practices with Marcus Rashford in training to perfect.
Speaking to club’s official website, Daniel James states: “Yeah, Marcus is obviously a great player to play with. The abilities he has are fantastic and he’s getting better every game. Something we work on in training is the movement and things like that and obviously, for me, getting out wide and [in] those positions I want to find him as much as I can, to get him goals and for him to assist me as well.”
“That’s something we talk about every day, to improve each other’s game.”
The 22-year-old goes on to add about the sort of goal scored by Rashford during the recent 3-3 draw to Sheffield United: “I think in those situations, over time you get better obviously because you do it in training. That’s something we do in training all the time. Obviously it’s going to be different balls and you’re going to be in different areas but [last Sunday] for me, the right ball was to pull it back.
“I saw him in the corner of my eye and I think if I went for goal it wouldn’t have been a goal. I think over time I’m learning every game to be in those situations and get those assists.”
