James discussed his relationship with the Wales coach while speaking on the UTD Podcast.
He said, “When people ask me what's the best advice you've ever been given, it would probably be from him [Giggs]. It was just 'be yourself'.
“I relate back to maybe the end of last season, I came away from that and tried to be like other players, I looked at other players and thought I need to be like him and be like that.
“It was this season and I kind of thought I'm here for a reason and I looked back at loads of old clips of me being me and then looked at my new clips [and thought] I'm not doing that [anymore].
“It was a reality to check for me in that you can take from him and you can take from different players around you but ultimately, you're here because of what you do, and it goes back to what Giggsy said to me to just 'be yourself', that was so important."
