In his latest column for Sky Sports, Arsenal and England legend Paul Merson has urged Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Daniel James.
The Sky Sports pundit thinks that the lightning-fast winger looks a ‘bit lost’ and believes that the 22-year-old ace ‘needs a break’.
Daniel James was arguably one of United’s only bright sparks in the early stages of the season but things have drifted off for the Welshman recently.
The Wales international’s winger last goal for the Red Devils across all competitions came in August, Paul Merson believes that the youngster’s game is solely based on his ‘pace’.
As per BBC Sport, the Red Devils parted with £15m to bring Daniel James to Old Trafford from Swansea last summer.
Here’s what Paul Merson had to say on the Welsh winger:
“With Manchester United, you’re talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world not having a centre forward.”
“They’re playing with Daniel James up front, who sooner or later has to be taken out of the team. You feel sorry for the lad, now. He looks a bit lost if I’m honest – he needs a break.”
“He’s playing all the time, but his game is based on sheer pace. It won’t bring you much alone in the Premier League, and I feel for him.”
“He needs to be brought out of the team, but they’ve haven’t got anyone to bring in for him.”
