GIGGS BACK­ING JAMES

Daily Express - - FOOTBALL: NATIONS LEAGUE -

WALES man­ager Ryan Giggs has leapt to the de­fence of un­der- fire winger Dan James.

James, 22, was hauled off in two re­cent Manch­ester United out­ings and sub­sti­tuted again in Sun­day’s 0- 0 Na­tions League draw with the Repub­lic of Ire­land.

“Dan has not trained much. He was ill af­ter the last time he played for United,” said Giggs ahead of tomorrow’s match in Bul­garia.

“He will be bet­ter af­ter the min­utes. He had only trained three times in the pre­vi­ous 10 days.”
