Perhaps in surprising news, Italy defender and stalwart Giorgio Chiellini has revealed he ‘likes’ to watch Daniel James for Manchester United. The defender is one of the most decorated in Serie A history but has admitted to being a fan of other leagues in the past.
The defender was ruled out of his side’s final group game against Wales, which is also set to decide the winners of the group after Roberto Mancini’s side secured qualification to the next round.
James has been one of the stars of Wales’ Euro 2020 campaign so far and would have relished the opportunity to face Chiellini, who is largely recognized as one of football’s best defenders.
'I love Aaron Ramsey – he's been unlucky with injuries' 🙏

“I like to watch Daniel James, growing up at Manchester United,” Chiellini said when quizzed on his side’s opponents on Sunday afternoon.
James started the encounter, solidifying his place as one of Rob Page’s most trusted players as they attempt to come out of the group stages top of the table.
