Emotional Daniel James Pays Tribute To Late Father After Debut Man Utd Goal

Emotional Daniel James Pays Tribute To Late Father After Debut Man Utd Goal

Daniel James pointed to the heavens in tribute to his late father after scoring on his Manchester United debut.

The 21-year-old Welshman bagged United's fourth goal in their rout over Chelsea after coming off the bench on Sunday.

And, after finding the bottom corner of Kepa Arrizabalaga's net, James was visibly emotional and pointed to the skies.

His dad Kevin suddenly died aged 60 just days before James completed a dream £15m move to Old Trafford in May.

"Every day, I miss him," James said. "He always drove me on when he was here.

"There are times when I am a bit down about it but what he would say is just keep playing and working hard.

"I know he is looking down on me now."

Manchester United ran riot on Chelsea on Sunday in a thumping 4-0 win to open their Premier League season.

Marcus Rashford gave them the lead from the penalty spot during a close first-half in which Chelsea hit the woodwork twice.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men pulled away after half-time in devastating fashion on the counter-attack.

Anthony Martial doubled their lead after converting a low cross before Rashford added his second, taking in a delightful long ball from Paul Pogba before sliding it past Kepa.

James replaced Andreas Pereira in the 74th minute - and his goal rounded off a brilliant opening weekend for Manchester United.
