Daniel James finally scored again after a 30 game drought, but he insists there is more to his game than just goals.

James arrived at United from Swansea in the summer for 15 million pounds. He was not expected to have any real kind of impact this season.

However, the Wales international has surprised many and got off to a flying start with the Red Devils.

However, since then he has struggled. Without a goal in 30 appearances in all competitions.

He has left many questioning if he can cut it at the very top.

James though has maintained his place in the United squad for the most part.

There is obviously something that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees in him that warrants a regular spot in the team, keeping faith with the 22- year-old.

Last night against LASK in the Europa League, James repaid that faith and got back on the score sheet.

The player was happy to score but insists he has more to his game than goals.

Speaking to the club’s in-house TV channel MUTV he said:

“It is nice to score.”

“Maybe I haven’t scored as many goals as I wanted to recently.”

“I got off to a good start but recently it has not been at the standards that I have wanted to be.”

“You can score in every game, you can improve and look back on what you can do more.”

“As a player, I give a lot more than goals.”

“I try to create them and work hard for the team, but [against LASK] was about getting off the mark and now I can capitalize to get more now.”
