Manchester United's Daniel James Gave Emotional Post-Match Interview After Chelsea Game

Manchester United winger Daniel James made the perfect start to life at Old Trafford on Sunday, scoring on his debut against Chelsea.

It was an emotional moment for the 21-year-old after coming on as a second half substitute.

He lost his father, Kevin, just days before completing his dream £15 million move to the club in May.

James pointed to heavens in tribute to his dad after bagging United's fourth goal of the game.

And after the full-time whistle, the former Swansea player dedicated his debut finish to his father in a post-match interview.

"It would have been amazing for him to be here today, but he's not, and I dedicate that goal to him." he said.

"I scored the winning penalty in Cardiff last week which was amazing, to be in Wales as well. To score on my debut here, you couldn't write it."
