Ryan Giggs backs Daniel James to succeed at Man United

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has backed winger Daniel James to do well at Manchester United, despite going through a rough patch at the moment.

"Dan didn't play as much towards the end of the season, but sometimes in the long run that can help you," Giggs said.

"He might not like it (being out of the team) and might want to be involved.

"But knowing Dan, the way he trains and his attitude, he will come through and be all the better for it.  You can have a different perspective of things."

"I think sometimes the players that don't necessarily play all the time for their clubs, it gives them a chance to get some minutes," Giggs added.

"It is a chance to try and get some form to go back to their clubs and show them what they can do.

"Perhaps DJ is in that camp. United start a week later, but DJ will turn up fit and raring to go, I'm sure.

"He has always been great when he has come into camp, he has always turned up in the right frame of mind."

The 22-year-old speedy winger hit the ground running at Old Trafford following his £18million move from Swansea in 2019, and he scored four goals in 42 appearances for the Red Devils last season.
