Manchester United: Fans discuss Daniel James’ nomination for Young Player of the Year

Manchester United: Fans discuss Daniel James’ nomination for Young Player of the Year - Manchester United News

Many Manchester United supporters have been discussing Laurie Whitwell’s nomination for The Athletic’s Premier League Young Player of the Year award

The Red Devils correspondent revealed he has chosen young midfielder Daniel James as his pick for the annual honour list.

Admittedly, the Welshman has struggled to replicate the consistency he displayed at the beginning of the season, scoring only 3 goals in 27 appearances in the Premier League for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side so far, although he has created the highest amount of assists out of all the senior squad. James has taken 1.3 shots per game, averaged 1.3 dribbles, and completed 0.5 key passes on average via WhoScored.

In comparison, his teammate Marcus Rashford, who is the same age as the Welsh international, has bagged 14 goals in just 22 games in the English top flight under the club legend, as well as providing 4 assists, registering a whopping 3.4 shots on average, notching at least 2 dribbles, and making 1.1 key passes per game (WhoScored).

Naturally, the journalist’s choice has split the fan base down the middle, with several calling the decision “awful” and a “bloody joke,” while on the other hand, another fan noted James has had a “decent” season so far.

Take a look at some of the mixed reactions on social media…
