Man Utd players made joke about Daniel James on his first day of training

Manchester United signed Daniel James from Swansea City during the summer after watching him impress in the Championship.

The 21-year-old was a stand out performer in the Championship last term and almost joined Leeds United this time last year, as per talkSPORT.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports the youngster has revealed he quickly became the brunt of a joke during his first day at Carrington after he was pictured driving his car.

The lads joked he needed a booster seat because he could barely see over his steering wheel.

“I think a photograph got taken the first day I drove my car in,” James said (via Manchester Evening News).

“I think it was Andreas [Pereira] who put it in the chat.

“I think I was just over the steering wheel — but it was because I was looking left and right!

“Ever since then the boys have said I need a booster seat for the car.”

Renowned for his blistering pace, James isn’t very tall and you can imagine him struggling to see over the steering wheel.

Next up for United is rivals Man City in the League Cup semi-final, on Tuesday night.
