Daniel James compared to Kylian Mbappe by Hungary manager

Hungary manager Marco Rossi has claimed Daniel James might be the fastest player in world football with only Kylian Mbappe to challenge him for pace.

Hungary are preparing for their UEFA European Championship clash against Wales on Tuesday with the winner set to qualify for the continental showpiece.

A draw would not favor either side, as if Slovakia can beat Azerbaijan then they will overtake both Hungary and Wales to grab second place.

Rossi was wary of James' pace ahead of their clash, "James is a player that is playing with a motorbike because he is really fast. I have never seen someone in the last period as fast as him, maybe Mbappe. He’s unbelievable.

"If we leave him space to run he could be dangerous. This could be the key, but we work a lot on the defensive line and will try to give confidence to our players."

James has featured in all 12 of Manchester United’s Premier League games this campaign, scoring three goals and registering two assists.
