Leeds United fans have criticised Manchester United winger Daniel James on Twitter for his dive against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

James was in action for United in their Premier League game against Wolves at the Molineux Stadium on Monday evening.

It was the 21-year-old winger’s first league start for the Red Devils following his move from Championship club Swansea City in the summer transfer window for an initial fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £15 million.

As reported by The Sun, the Wales international went down early on in the game, and that did not please the Wolves fans at all.

 

Then in the 24th minute, James went down again, and this time he was booked by the referee for diving.

The youngster had a disappointing game overall and failed to make a huge impact on the match, as he struggled to keep the ball and play the right passes.

According to WhoScored, the winger took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 83.3%, made one tackle, and attempted one dribble.

James was close to joining Leeds from Championship rivals Swansea in January 2019, as shown in the Amazon documentary ‘Take Us Home’ about the Whites’ 2018-19 season and reported in The Daily Mail.

Leeds fans were not impressed with James on Monday and have criticised him on Twitter, although some do think that he would have been a good signing for the Whites.
