Solskjaer: James an Example for Everyone at Man Utd

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised the impact young winger Daniel James has had since signing for the club following another goalscoring performance.

The Wales international was on target again for Manchester United in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Southampton - his third goal of the season from just four appearances.

However, the Red Devils did not emerge from the south coast with all three points thanks to Jannik Vestergaard’s second-half header, which guaranteed the Saints a share of the spoils.

Speaking after the game, Solskjaer was quick to praise the contribution of James since joining from Swansea City this summer.

“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,” the Red Devils manager said in his post-match press conference.

“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.” Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
