Man United player Daniel James responds to praise from Jack Grealish

2 min read

Daniel James spoke about his friendship with Jack Grealish after receiving a congratulatory message following his impressive performance for Manchester United against Real Sociedad.

The Welsh winger enjoyed a fantastic week for United, starring in their 4-0 victory over Sociedad in the Europa League before impressing in the Premier League against Newcastle United a few days later.

James scored in both fixtures to earn praise from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after staking his claim for more regular minutes in the Premier League after a spell out of the team.

“Dan never disappeared,” Solskjaer told BT Sport after United’s 3-1 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday. “He has been working hard behind the scenes and always been available. He’s always a player you can use in different areas with his energy and pace.

“We work with him, we try to help everyone but of course Dan came from the Championship, he hit a few goals in his first games and that’s bound to take some energy from you. He has knuckled down and really worked to get back to full fitness but maybe also confidence, to believe in himself.”

James’ performance in Turin drew praise from Aston Villa captain Grealish, who wrote “Well done lad” on Instagram.

Given Grealish and James have never played for the same team, there was understandable curiosity about the connection between the pair. James has explained that the two players are good friends off the field, sharing the same agent.

“Yeah [we’re friends], I’ve met him a few times as we actually have the same agency,” he explained. “I’ve seen Jack on holiday a few times actually and he’s a very nice lad.”
