Ryan Giggs has warned Daniel James to take his chances when they come at Manchester United in the coming season.
Giggs, who manages Dan James in the Welsh national team, gave a positive report on the 22-year-old two performances in recent Nations League wins over Finland and Bulgaria.
On a side note, it must be said that Giggs is doing a great job as Wales manager.
James assisted Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore in the win over Finland, so he should return to United for the new season full of confidence.
Last season I think he played more football than manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had initially planned when signing him from Swansea City. Still, the Welsh winger gave a good account of himself and I think he will make a very good squad player for years to come. Or, even better, more than that.
It’s early days yet and James has a lot of questions to answer. He’s young and still developing his game.
Giggs told WalesOnline: “He was excellent, especially in the first game. It was a lot to ask for some of the players who hadn’t played for a long time to play two lots of 90 minutes.
“He’s still young. If you go back 18 months he was just getting into the Swansea team, so it has been an interesting two years or so. He’ll be all the better for last season’s experiences.
“He’ll look to start the season well and give Ole the problem of picking him. But with teams like United who are in Europe, you’ll always have a lot of games, so you’ll get plenty of game time, and when you do get the chance you have to take it.”
