21-year-old Man United attacker could miss the Europa League clash
Norwegian manager is concerned that Daniel James could suffer from burnout at Old Trafford. Wales international has impressed since his £18m move from Swansea City in the summer with three goals and three assists so far. He has vast potential and can become a top-class attacker if he continuous improvement.
Daniel has already played 15 games for the Red Devils this campaign, playing 895 minutes in the PL and has featured in two Europa League games. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘fears’ that James could begin to suffer from fatigue and is planning to rest the forward.
‘Nobody can question Daniel’s attitude or fitness, but he has to be taken care of,’ a source at Red Devils said. ‘We don’t want to see him sidelined with an injury due to fatigue. ‘Solskjaer is just making his mind up when to order him to put his feet up.’ Norwegian tactician preparing to give chance young footballers like Mason Greenwood.
Man United host Partizan Belgrade in the UEL on Thursday evening and a win would all but secure their place in the next round of the tournament. After that, Norwegian coach’s men will then turn their attention to the Premier League as they face Brighton at Old Trafford on the weekend.
Man United started this campaign terribly as they are in a 10th place in the Premier League table. Red Devils signed several footballers during the summer transfer window like Harry Maguire from Leicester City, Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace and Daniel James from Swansea.
