Manchester United new boy Daniel James has admitted he favours playing from the left wing after making his full debut for the club against Perth Glory.

The 21-year-old played in the opening 45 minutes of United’s 2-0 win in Western Australia with goals coming from Marcus Rashford and James Garner after the interval.

James was named Man of the Match and impressed with his determination to stretch the opposition with incisive runs in behind.

The Welshman was signed for his ability to play across the front but United fans were hoping he could solve the side’s problem on the right-wing that has remained unfilled in recent years.

However, despite revealing he’s happy in any position, James admits he prefers playing from the left.

‘For me that left position was always my favourite but I like being versatile and playing anywhere across the front three providing I’m in the team,’ said James.

‘It’s important you’ve got to play all three and our forward players can play that. Antony played No 9 today and it’s good for us all to interlink and we swapped a few times and it’s good to play all three.’
