Winger Daniel James has made a superb start in Manchester United, and the Red Devils boss knows he can develop into a better player.

Midfielder Daniel James has recently joined Manchester United in the English Premier League.

And he has averaged a goal every 95 minutes for the Red Devils since joining in the summer.

Which is why manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the youngster.

“He’s come in and made an impact ever since day one in training – [today] he made a recovery run, won the ball, went forward,” he told Goal.

“I think he’s an example for everyone. He’s our top scorer, that comes from his personality, his habits. He’s humble, he works hard and he knows he can improve.”

“He knows he could have scored a few more [against Southampton] and we’ll work with him to get his quality even higher, better and then we’ll have a top, top player,” he added.

“Both Anthony [Martial] and Marcus [Rashford] they’ve played I don’t know how many games and they’ve had so many years in this football club, in this team.”

“I expect them to be leading stars as well. And of course, Dan James coming in as well, [although] we don’t expect him to score in every game he starts. Mason [Greenwood] was also unlucky [at Southampton]. We’re on the right track,” he commented.

“Last week he lost one header that was the flick on, today he lost a header and they get a goal. You don’t expect center-backs to win every single header.”

“It’s not like he’s a little boy either, Vestergaard, but we should have done better, stopped the cross – it was just those were the ten seconds that they created something. Apart from that, I thought Victor did well,” Solskjaer concluded.
