Daniel James is poised to make a bigger impact in 2021-22
The Welsh International is not always a frequenter of the Red Devils, but remains optimistic about its future on Old Trafford.
Daniel has more to come next season
Man Utd winger Daniel James insists he will have more of his next term, spending the 2020-21 season with and outside the Red Devils. Daniel played 26 matches in all competitions during the season, a significant decrease from the 46 games he played in the previous campaign. However, while Daniel hasn’t always been recruited into the first team, he says he has improved as a player over the past 12 months and believes he’s poised to make a bigger impact in 2021-22.
Daniel James continues to improve
Reflecting on the progress made in his second season as a Man Utd player, Daniel James told the club’s website that he thinks he develops every game and learns. Daniel James reflects on every game and every season, whether he played zero minutes, whether he played all the games and Daniel thinks that he is always learning. Daniel believes he is not close to his potential and just wants to keep improving. Although he was not always a regular aside Daniel still scored five goals, including in the Champions League against Istanbul-based Basaksehir and the Europa League away at Real Sociedad. The Sociedad’s game in March was one of eight starts in nine winger games, having started just once from the start of the year before.
Daniel James admits that the extended spell on the sidelines was his favorite part of the season, with his hit against Sociedad a standout moment. According to James when they played in Istanbul, he got off the bench and scored. Daniel has set himself a few small targets, to score as many goals as he can. James scored one against Newcastle, but he thinks he enjoyed Sociedad’s play away from home. Daniel was involved in a couple of goals there and got into the score himself, so it is likely that one was his favorite.
