Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has come out to say that Daniel James was never MUFC standard. He recently revealed that the winger’s move to Leeds will prove beneficial to all concerned.
According to him, the way Man United and Daniel James play do not suit each other, therefore the exit to a club at his level was very necessary.
Rio added that James is definitely EPL standard and he expects him to do very well at his new club.
His words, “They’ve been on him for ages, they’ve wanted this boy for time.”
“Listen, Dan James, I don’t think he’s Man Utd standard, but he’s definitely Premier League standard and the way Leeds play, he’s going to be a problem for a few teams.”
“The kid in that team will be getting the ball and getting forward quick, and that suits his game.”
“When you have to break down two banks of four like Man Utd that doesn’t suit James’ game, he likes space. Leeds United for Dan James will be a fantastic move for both parties.”
“The second half we changed the system a little bit and I was able to find a lot more space and get time on the ball and get in positions that were fairly similar to playing in midfield anyway.”
