Despite not being a regular all the time, the Red Devils’ winger is optimistic about what the future holds for him at Old Trafford.
is confident that he has more to offer in the next campaign after having ups and downs in the 2020-21 season withManchester United
The Wales international featured in 26 matches this season, which was a noticeable drop on the 46 appearances he had made in the previous season.
Despite that, James insists that he has grown and improved as a player during the last 12 months and is confident that he will make a difference in 2021-22.
Manchester United winger James told the club’swebsite
“I think I'm developing every single game. I'm learning.
“I reflect on every game and every season I've played, whether I've played zero minutes, whether I play all the games, I think I'm always learning. For me, I'm nowhere near my potential and I just want to keep improving.”
The 23-year-old met the back of the net five times, including in the battles against Istanbul Basaksehir and Real Sociedad.
When we played Istanbul, I came off the bench and scored. I set myself a few little targets, to score as many goals as I can really,”
“I scored one against Newcastle but I think the Sociedad game I enjoyed away from home.
“[I was] involved in a couple of goals there and got on the scoresheet myself as well, so probably that one [was my favourite].”
The Pandemic resulted in most of the 2020-21 matches being played without fans in the stadium. James believes the players got accustomed to the empty stands but he knows that without fans, football is not the same.
It's been different. It's been hectic. We know the fans are behind us from home, but it's just not the same,”
“It's kind of become normal now without fans but I think you watch games back where we've played games and you can hear the cheering and you kind of forget a little bit. You remember it well in your head but you just want to hear that roar when you're running with the ball.
“It'll be something that will be great to have back. I think they're missing it just as much as we are. I hope soon we'll get it back when everything's safe.”
