Giggs: Man Utd winger James copping it like Ronaldo

Wales coach Ryan Giggs has likened Manchester United winger Daniel James to his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, now with Juventus.

James, who turns 22 today, has made a stunning start to life at Old Trafford.

But he has become an instant target to be kicked from pillar to post by defences — just like superstar Ronaldo — and Giggs said: “Dan takes a lot of knocks but gets up, gets on with it and demands the ball back.

“Ronaldo, especially earlier on in his career, took a lot of knocks and would still demand the ball. It shows huge bravery.

“Dan’s a fantastic character and great professional.”
