It was a contrasting summer for the new signing of Manchester United Daniel James.
It has just provided a dream come true in Manchester United, but at the end of May it has also experienced some of the most difficult things that can be experienced.
Father Kevan has passed away, only 60 years old.
Death stopped the transition to United but three weeks later the coach came to Old Trafford.
Manchester United player speaks of guilty.
– Every day I miss him. He always pushed me when he was here, James told the BBC.
At the same time, he feels his father gives strength.
– I know she is looking down now, it gives me a momentum.
One of the things that keep him going is that he knows exactly what his dad wanted.
"I'm casually depressed, but he said I had to keep playing and working hard," says the 21-year-old.
Earlier this summer he wrote a touching post on Instagram, thanking his father for everything he did for Manchester United's new player.
– Do not pass one day without you. You are my inspiration and I would not be where I am today without you. I could not be more proud of my son. You never made me do something I would not do, you always wanted me to do what made me happy. The words can not describe the pain I now feel, James wrote.
– I just want you to know how much I love you and how much we miss you. You made sure everyone had a smile in your mouth with your funny jokes and you all laughed. Thank you for everything you did for me,
I could not look for anything better. I want to make you proud, I promise, he continued.
James has gained confidence in winning 1: 0 against Inter for the weekend, and has repeatedly praised Ole Gunnar Solskjær's manager several times during the race. However, he does not consider it to be healthy for almost to be in start-up when the Premier League is thrown out
"It's nice but there are three games left until the beginning of the season," says United Newcomer.
