21-year-old striker desperate to revive his career at Manchester United

James Wilson was destined to do great things at Old Trafford after his remarkable debut and brace against Hull City in May 2014, but then the injuries hampered his progress.

Wilson is currently recovering from ruptured cruciate ligament he suffered last October while on loan at Derby County but is close to returning and is determined to overcome the injury and be in Jose Mourinho’s plans for the upcoming season. The 21-year-old stays strong mentally, and he is eager to showcase his talent upon his return to the pitch.

“I’m feeling stronger, I’m doing a lot of work and I’m feeling good,“ Wilson said. “I felt I needed a bit more practice and the keepers were more than happy to help as we’ve got seven out here. It was good for me and the goalies as well to get back into the swing of things. It was just finishing from the edge of the box, set and finish, and it went rather well!”

“I’ve been at the gym for what has probably been nine months now. Gym sessions at least three or four times a week. It has helped me a lot and I’m noticing that in training. My legs are maybe still a bit off but definitely my upper body has surpassed what I was before,” he continued.

“I think you have to be quite versatile in the modern game. If you can play on the wings, unless you’re a real big target man, obvious players like Peter Crouch, who brings something extra to the team, I think you need to be quite versatile if you want to be playing games week in and week out. I can play more positions and it’s not really an issue for me. It’s just about getting a chance really,” the youngster concluded.

Wilson’s willingness and determination is quite laudable and his mental strength is his biggest ally, so we can expect James to get back on the track soon and continue his progress at Old Trafford.
