Manchester United legend Patrice Evra is certain Daniel James will succeed at the club because he has the ‘right attitude’.

The Welshman has made a scintillating start to his career at Old Trafford, scoring three times in four games following his £18million arrival from Swansea City.

James was one of three British signings at the club this summer and is reflective of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s determination to restore some of Sir Alex Ferguson’s values at the Theatre of Dreams.

Evra, who was back at United this week to continue his coaching badges, was on hand today to deliver the player of the month award to James.

‘I can see it. It’s the best day in your life when you’re playing for this club and we need those players.

‘I remember your celebration [against Chelsea] — 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. 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.’
