Daniel James discusses "headache" Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted at Man Utd

Daniel James feels he has given boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer exactly what he wanted – a selection headache.

The Welsh winger has rarely featured for Manchester United this season but scored in Thursday's 4-0 win over Real Sociedad to increase his chances of a regular starting berth.

James was a constant threat throughout the Europa League first leg tie, terrorising United's Spanish opponents with his blistering pace.

The 23-year-old is now hopeful of keeping his place in the side for the visit of Newcastle on Sunday, and knows he has put extra pressure on Solskjaer.

"All of us forward players have got to give him a headache with his decisions, and I think that’s what he wants as well," James told United's official website.

“He always says he wants that and when I play, I just give my best."

While James has only made 12 appearances in all competitions for his club side this season, his form since the end of November has seen him score four times in his last seven matches.

At one stage it looked as though he could leave United on loan in January as Premier League clubs lined up to secure his services, particularly following the arrival of fellow right-winger Amad.

But Solskjaer has continually insisted James has a part to play for United this season, and the former Swansea man is just focusing on taking his chances when they come.

Should James be given a greater run in the United side? Have your say below.

“I haven’t played much recently but I’ve just been working hard on the training ground, doing the same things that I do all the time,” James continued.

“I know the gaffer believes in me and trusts me when I play, so it’s just, as you said, taking all that stuff from training and what you’ve learned into a game.

“I think I’ll always be ready and I’m proud to play every time I put on the shirt. It’s great.”
