Leicester's James helping kid brother at Man Utd

Manchester United fullback Reece James has revealed the support he receives from older brother Matt.

Matty James was with United until last season, when he moved to Leicester City.

Reece told MUTV: "Matty is a massive influence on my career. I remember watching him when I was 10 years old and I still watch him now he's at Leicester. He watches my games, either on MUTV or live, and tells me where I can improve as a player.

"He's helped me at left-back because you can have similar attributes to the midfield position. I was trying to do better than him but, at the same time, it was very pleasing to see what he was doing, like captaining England [youth side] at Wembley. It was a great day for all the family to watch him there."
