Ryan Giggs believes Daniel James will not be burned out for Wales despite recent performances for Man United drawing criticism. The 22-year-old signed for Manchester United for only £15m back in June 2019 and has been lauded as a shrewd signing.

A diamond picked from the rough of the Championship was a low risk as United smartly captured one of Wales’ most promising youngsters. Three goals in his opening four games for the club followed as James quickly became one of the most feared wingers in the Premier League with his electrifying pace.
However, over recent months his performances have drawn criticism with the young Welshman looking tired and out of form. Despite this, the 22-year-old will not burn out according to Wales manager Ryan Giggs. He told BBC Sport,
“Dan has done fantastically. To make the step up to United and to have the start he did, he’s fine.”
“He’s played a lot of games, but that’s good. The more games you play, the better experience you will have.”
The former United winger will see echoes of himself in James as he too was thrown into the deep end at the club 25 years ago. Euro 2021 fans can book Wales Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
When asked directly about the potential for burnout the Wales manager responded, “No, Dan’s a tough cookie, he gets kicked. He’s played in the Championship – when you play in the Championship for a couple of seasons you are robust and ready for the Premier League.”
Regardless of Giggs’ optimism, James’ drop in form is evident. He looks shot of confidence with no goals for the Red Devils since September. However, this is no fault of his own as he been overused and poorly managed in what is widely seen as the worst Manchester United team in 30 years.

James, with only 2 seasons of professional football under his belt, has been expected to be the solution to United’s creativity issues. The most highly scrutinized club in world football may not be the ideal place for a young player to build confidence in the early stages of his career.
Especially if that player is expected to play with the likes of Andreas Pereira every week!Giggs’ response seems to be a very typical case of special treatment for former teammates. Behavior is rife among former players. But the Wales manager can hardly be blamed for protecting his players ahead of an important summer.
Encouragingly, James has still been one of United’s brightest sparks. With six assists this season, Kevin De Bruyne, Emiliano Buendia, Riyad Mahrez, David Silva, and Adama Traore are the only midfielders with more in the Premier League this season. From this evidence, the young lad from Swansea has been overachieving.
This dip in form is solely down to the naivety and inexperience of his club manager. The 22-year-old should have been slowly eased into the team instead of starting 22 league games by February.
Despite this, the young Welshman will be a key part of Wales’ Euro 2020 squad and the national setup going forward. He remains one of the most exciting prospects in Welsh football and given time will inevitably reach his potential.
