Manchester United new boy Daniel James has revealed what he told his new teammates after coming to Old Trafford. The 21-year-old signed from Swansea City for £18m and has left an instant impression following his debut against Perth Glory in Australia.
Speaking about his strengths and his style of play, James said,
“As soon as I came in I told the full-backs my strengths and how I like to play,’ James told MUTV after the match.
“Youngy [Ashley Young] cut inside a lot and was playing me in quite a lot.
“That’s important over the next few weeks to get that link up over the next few weeks to get the best out of them and the best out of me.
“There were quite a few times I got in there, that’s what we want to do, 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. And it’s important for me to do it for him.”
“For me that left position was always my favourite but I like being versatile and playing anywhere across the front three providing I’m in the team,”
“It’s important you’ve got to play all three and our forward players can play that.
“Anthony [Martial] played No 9 today and it’s good for us all to interlink and we swapped a few times and it’s good to play all three.”
