James and United are at the champions-elect today.
He said: “It definitely isn't true that I supported Liverpool. It's been a crazy 12 months and every day I think of what I was doing a year ago.
“I exchange texts messages with Ryan Giggs quite a lot because he was a legend here and someone I look up to as a big inspiration.
“Obviously, with him being my manager for Wales, he helps me a lot.
“The main message from him when I came here was for me to just be myself – and that's exactly what I have been."
