Manchester United winger Daniel James has admitted to being a Chelsea fan.

The winger, who joined Manchester United from Wales two years ago, admitted to loving former Chelsea stats Didier Drogba, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata while growing up.

James told United’s official website: “When I signed for United, I can’t remember who it was, one of the Sky Sports [pundits] said: ‘he supports Liverpool’.

“I was thinking I don’t support Liverpool, but I never wanted to come out and say I supported Chelsea as a youngster.

“When I started playing for Swansea it [Chelsea] was the team I followed, but you don’t end up supporting them really.

“I used to look at their players when I was younger – [Eden] Hazard, [Juan] Mata and [Didier] Drogba – and they were players that I loved. You kind of grow out of that.”
