Man Utd winger James: I was NEVER a Liverpool fan

Manchester United winger Daniel James denies claims he was a Liverpool fan growing up.

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."
