Man Utd striker Rashford hails James 'character' after Burnley kicking

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford hailed the performance of Daniel James for victory at Burnley.

Anthony Martial put the Red Devils ahead just before half-time at Turf Moor before Rashford sealed victory in injury time to send Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side fifth in the Premier League.

James was constantly kicked by Burnley's players on the night and Rashford told MUTV: “We speak about character. That's character for me.

“He's getting knocked down every time he's getting the ball for 95 minutes, but he's still getting up and running with the ball and making passes.

“He's been a threat for us every time he's been on the pitch. It takes a lot of character to do what he does on a regular basis and he's been class for us."
