Manchester United winger, Daniel James is looking forward to marking his European debut for the club vs AZ tomorrow.
Mufc will head to Holland for Thursday’s clash as they hope to make it two victories from two in the Europa League this season after a crucial win vs Astana on matchday one.
Daniel James did not feature vs Astana but is set to make his first appearance in European competition at the Cars Jeans Stadion, AZ’s stadium.
Speaking on the clash, James believes a good result will make qualifying to the next round smooth and easy.
His words, “I’ve had my taste of the Premier League and now playing in Europe is always different,”
“Astana came to us and some people wrote them off before they played but they gave us a good game. I think you can never write these teams off. They wouldn’t be in the competition if they weren’t very good teams. Every game we play in Europe, we have got to be ready for it and prepare right.
“It was important to get off to a good start and it is another one where we have to go and win as it just takes the pressure off us, really. That comes with people expecting us to go through in the group, so to get two early wins would be great.
“As you see, when we score, we’re all together and, when we concede, we’re all together. It’s so important. We’ve got a great group here and the team spirit is a massive part of it.”
On the bad pitch, “”All the boys played on them growing up,””
“It’s going to be a different test, obviously, as playing abroad is always hard. It’s different to play in the Premier League but it’s one we’re looking forward to and are going to be ready for.
“I think the surfaces [synthetic and grass] are similar really. It’s a bit harder than normal grass but the ball moves the same on it.
“It’s something the boys know they can’t do anything about and it’s not something we’re going to let get into our heads.”
