Many Manchester United fans were left to slam the display of Dan James in their 1-1 home draw to AC Milan in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night.
Amad Diallo’s first senior goal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team was cancelled out very late on by a header from Simon Kjaer at Old Trafford, which Dean Henderson should have done much better with.
Nonetheless, James was guilty of missing a great chance in the second half that he put wide of the goal, and did not have the best of games in general.
Should James start for Manchester United?
The former Swansea City man lost out on five of his duels and also failed to record a single shot on target, key pass or accurate cross in the match (Sofascore).
He also lost possession of the ball no fewer than 15 times, the joint-second most out of any MUFC player, as he earned a very measly 6.3 overall rating on Sofascore, the lowest out of any of his teammates to have started the clash.
Manchester United fan reaction to James display
These Red Devils slammed his performance on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far as to claim that the Wales international is ‘useless’:
“Honestly I don’t want to see Dan James and Nemanja Matic play for us next season. It’s time to go! #MUFC”
“A pair of empty boots is better than James and Maguire. #MUNACM #MUFC #GGMU”
“OGS, Maguire & James are all frauds #MUFC”
“Forget pointless James, out of form Rashford, and Antho-Lazy Martial; this Adam Diallo is what #MUFC need upfront!! How much are we paying Cavani for his 3 goals a season?”
“Daniel James is a very useless player. #MUFC #MUFCACM”
“McTominay, Matic, Fred & James are not good enough for Man United. Long-term, short-term, just not in the same league. #MUFC #MUNACM #UEL”
