Neville praises Daniel James

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has hailed summer signing Daniel James following his impressive beginning to the season with the Red Devils.

James was the Red Devils first signing of the summer transfer window and he caught the attention of the fans and pundits alike in pre-season with his immense pace and high pressing qualities.

Both of those have been visible during the opening two games of the new league campaign and Neville sees plenty of good things going forward for the former Swansea City graduate.

He told Sky Sports: "If he gets one on one it is obscene pace he’s got. You would not want to play against him. He makes six, seven, eight yards in the space of 25 yards. The quality is decent when he gets there, it was an unbelievable start for him against Chelsea."

James scored his maiden United goal against Chelsea on debut earlier this month after he made a cameo appearance off the bench in a comfortable 4-0 triumph.

Against Wolves, he was rewarded with a starting role for his efforts in the season opener and he was full of tireless running with the ball, although he lacked the end product in the final third.
