Daniel James Needs Referee Protection Says Ryan Giggs

The former manchester united player, and Wales manager, Ryan Giggs says Manchester United winger Daniel James is no diver and needs extra protection from referees.

Daniel James was booked for simulation on his first United start in Monday’s 1-1 Premier League draw at Wolves and was then booed by the home fans at Molineux.

The 21-year-old, who has impressed since moving to Old Trafford from Swansea and scored on his debut against Chelsea, has been named in Giggs’ 26-man squad for next month’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Azerbaijan and friendly with Belarus, both in Cardiff.

“You’ve seen he gets kicked a lot,” Giggs said. “Sometimes when you anticipate it, it can look like a dive.

“The speed he’s going at, it can look worse, but I’m not worried about that. He gets a lot of stick and referees need to protect him.

“I watched a lot of the pre-season games and Daniel James did well as he usually plays on the left. It gives me a different option as well if he’s playing his club football on the right. If I want to do that, I can.”
