Manchester United winger Daniel James has admitted he is ‘nowhere near his potential’ at the club following a hectic season amid the Covid pandemic.
The 23-year-old Wales international only played 26 matches in all competitions, compared to 46 in the previous campaign under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And James told the club’s official website that he has a lot left in the tank and vowed to try his best to have a greater impact for the Red Devils next year.
Manchester United’s Daniel James has insisted he is ‘nowhere near his potential’ at the club
James was used sparingly this season by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, playing just 26 times
He said: ‘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.’
Despite being in and out of the side James still managed a total of five goals in all competitions – his joint-best scoring season ever – but the 20-cap international admitted the busy schedule across the campaign was taxing.

He added: ‘It’s been different. It’s been hectic. We know the fans are behind us from home, but it’s just not the same.
‘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.’
James was named in caretaker manager Robert Page’s Wales squad for the Euros and will be hoping to impress for his country at this summer’s tournament.
