Anthony Martial’s return from injury has helped Manchester United’s recent upturn in form, according to new signing, Daniel James.
Martial missed about two months of action with a thigh injury coming back with a substitute appearance in the 1-1 draw against Liverpool on October 20.
Since then, Man Utd have won 5 of their six matches and Daniel James believes Martial’s influence has been key to the improved performances.
His words, “Since he’s come back in, we’ve got that focal point,”
“He’s a great link-up player. He can come short or go in behind. It’s been important for me and for Marcus since he’s come back into the team to get that interlink.
“Since he’s come back, he’s got goals and he’s got assists and he’s been great for us.”
On his career as a Man Utd player so far, “Coming in was always going to be tough and it was going to be different from playing in the Championship,”
“I think I’ve taken it in my stride, tried to calm myself down a bit and think, ‘I’m here for a reason’.
“At the start of the season, I maybe didn’t think I would play as much. Every game I’ve been learning and the gaffer has trusted me and I’ve really enjoyed it.”
