James: "United fans are our 12th man"
Daniel James has been blown away by the level of support shown by Manchester United fans in his short Reds career so far.
In an exclusive interview in the new issue of Inside United magazine – on sale from today (Tuesday) – the Wales winger reflects on his goalscoring feats in front of the Old Trafford faithful and says that the backing of the fans is going to be vital during the season ahead.
“Coming out to Old Trafford on my starting home debut [against Crystal Palace] was amazing,” he says.
“You really feel it – I got goosebumps when I came out. The atmosphere was amazing. You hear them all game. The away fans at Wolves and the amount of people that come is amazing as well. You could say they were as loud as the home fans, and that’s something that’s going to be very important again this year – for them to be behind us and be our 12th player.”
James covers a lot of ground in the in-depth interview, from his formative footballing experiences in Hull to the key moments with Swansea and the Wales national team that made him the player who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was persuaded to bring to Manchester United.
There's plenty more besides for Reds fans to get stuck into, which you can do by buying the official club magazine in newsagents, at the Old Trafford Megastore, around the stadium at home games or online here.
