​Hungary national team's coach Marco Rossi has claimed that new ​Manchester United signing, Daniel James is like Usain Bolt and Ronaldo Nazario combined into one blockbuster package.


Wales winger James will complete his £18m move to Manchester United this week once he returns from international duty. The club has already announced that an agreement has been reached over the player's transfer, after which, ​club legend and Wales coach Ryan Giggs also praised James' United move.


The 21-year-old is likely to start against Hungary on Wednesday and Rossi has been blown away by his pace.


"James' speed reminds of Usain Bolt - to be so fast like him is really incredible," Rossi said at his pre-match press conference, as reported by the ​Mirror.




He continued, "In the last years I don't remember one player that gave me this sensation. His acceleration is so peculiar, which is why Manchester United have bought him."


The young winger has already made a name for himself on the international stage as he went on to score Wales' winner in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier against Slovakia in March.


And Rossi has noted some similarities between him and some of football's greatest ever. Rossi claimed in conclusion, "In the past I played against a very fast player who, according to me, was the best after Maradona - Ronaldo. He was just not known for speed, but for everything. His acceleration looked like James, though at the moment the skills are a little bit different."
