“Got to be Marcos [Rojo],” he said.

“He’s Argentinean and hard as. He doesn’t pull out of anything.

“In training, there has been a few times where you’re coming head to head and you end up jumping out the way.

“You don’t want to be in the way of him.”

When asked who was the grumpiest teammate in the United dressing room, James named Ashley Young as the player who loves to moan.

The 21-year-old said the United captain is always letting his feelings be known.

He said:

It’s got to be Ash. He’s been at this club for so long but he’s always moaning. Little things all the time.

“He’s a great guy and a great captain but he’s always moaning.

“It can be from no bibs out to inside something isn’t right – you can always hear him.”
