Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has identified Daniel James, as possibly the club’s best player this season.
The 21-year-old joined the Red Devils from Swansea City over the summer and has netted three times already.
Although, he was fulsome in his praise of James, Ferdinand said his prominence was evidence that United will need time, and stability, to return to prominence.
“They’ve got some good young ones, I don’t think they expected what they have got from Daniel James so early, he’s been very good and probably their most influential so far.
“What does that say about the squad? When you’re buying someone from Swansea who was probably brought as someone who could flourish at a later date, who has now been forced into the forefront as the main man in the team at the moment.
“That says where United are at this minute and I think time is something that is needed. It’s not afforded to too many people in the game at the moment.
“Ole probably needs another window to get more people in, shuffle the pack and get more out, then you can really start to judge him on that,” Ferdinand told talkSPORT.
