Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted for Daniel James after Sunday’s victory over Newcastle United.
James found the back of the net in the 3-1 victory, following up from his goal against Real Sociedad last week, in what was his first Premier League start since December 26.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said James thoroughly deserved his positive run of form after working extremely hard in training.
“He [Daniel James] is working hard, he is a great boy in and around the place,” Solskjaer said. “He knows he has been very close a few times. When you score the amount of goals he has at the moment confidence must be sky high.
“Dan with the energy he has, the x factor and the pace, he gives us something that must be hard to play against if you are a defender.
“He never disappeared. He has been working hard behind the scenes and always been available. He is always a player you can use in different areas with his energy and pace.
“We work with him, we try to help everyone but of course Dan came from the Championship, he hit a few goals in the first games and it is bound to take some energy from you. He has knuckled down and really worked to get back to full fitness but maybe more so confidence, to believe in himself.”
