Utd new-boy likened to R9 & Bolt

Manchester United's latest signing Daniel James has earned comparisons to Ronaldo Nazario and Usain Bolt after his recent explosive displays.

James, 21, won his third cap in Wales' 2-1 defeat in Croatia this past weekend as has clearly made an impression on the manager of their Euro qualifying Group E rivals.
 
 
"James' speed reminds me of Usain Bolt... to be so fast like him is really incredible," Hungary head coach Marco Rossi said, as quoted by BBC Football.
 
Rossi spent most of his playing career in his native Italy, with a two-year spell at Serie A side Sampdoria from 1993-1995 and played against the Brazil legend - who was known for his incedible speed and dribbling ability over his iconic career.
 
"In the last years I don't remember one player that gave me the sensation," said Rossi. "James' acceleration and skill is so peculiar, which is why Manchester United have bought him.
 
"In the past I played against a very fast player who, according to me, was the best after Maradona - Ronaldo.
 
"He was not (just) known for speed but for everything. His acceleration looked like James. At the moment the skills are a little bit different."
