Manchester United star Daniel James insists his team-mates aren’t worried about playing on an artificial pitch after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed his concerns.

In their second Europa League clash, United face AZ Almaar at Den Haag’s ground, as their stadium recently collapsed in strong winds,  forcing the Dutch side to play their games at the Kyocera Stadium.

Den Haag’s ground features an artificial pitch, which Solskjaer labelled “one of the worst ones I’ve seen for a long while.”

However, James insists his teammates do not share their manager’s concerns.

“All the boys played on them [artificial pitches] growing up,” said James on Man United’s official website. “It’s going to be a different test, obviously, as playing abroad is always hard. It’s different to play in the Premier League but it’s one we’re looking forward to and are going to be ready for.”
