Manchester United winger Daniel James has admitted he is ‘not close to his potential’ at the club after a hectic season amid the Covid pandemic.
The 23-year-old Wales international has played just 26 games in all competitions, compared to 46 last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And James told the club official website that he still has a lot in the tank and swore he would do his best to make a bigger impact for the Red Devils next year.

James was used sparingly by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, he only played 26 times
He said, ‘I develop every game. I am studying. I think back to every game and every season I’ve played, whether I’ve played zero minutes, whether I’ve played all the games, I think I’m always learning.
“For me, I’m nowhere near my potential and I just want to keep improving.”
Despite coming in and out of the side, James still scored a total of five goals in all competitions – his collective best season ever – but the 20-cap international admitted the busy schedule was taxing throughout the season.

He added: ‘It has been different. It’s been hectic. We know the fans from home are behind us, but it’s just not the same.
“You just want to hear that roar when you run with the ball. It will be a great thing to have back. I think they miss it as much as we do. I hope we get it back soon when everything is safe.”
James was named in Wales coach Robert Page’s squad for the European Championship and hopes to impress for his country at the tournament this summer.
