Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has singled Manchester United youngster Daniel James for praise after the 21 year old picked up Manchester United’s Player of the Month award following his impressive start to life at Old Trafford.
James has scored three goals in four games for Manchester United after signing from Swansea City this summer for £15m.
As Evra handed James the United Player of the Month award, he told the 21 year old how impressed he has been with his attitude.
Evra said: “I think you deserve it and, to be honest, like I was saying before, I’m really, really happy to give you that trophy because the passion, the love.
“I can see it. It’s the best day in your life when you’re playing for this club and we need those players.”
Commenting on James’ celebration after he scored his first Manchester United goal on his debut against Chelsea, Evra said: “I remember your celebration — you gave me goosebumps! I was watching on TV and it was not about your goal, but more about your celebration because it was like ‘the club is on the right way’ because we need players like you.”
“Your age doesn’t matter,” he continued. “If you’re young or you’re old, you need to show that passion and that love for this shirt because this badge has a big history.
“I think you understand everything, and I’m convinced, 100 per cent, that you’re going to have an amazing career because you have the right attitude, and that’s important.”
