Manchester United fans have taken to their twitter pages to express that Brandon Williams is the Sh*thouse Manchester United desperately need right now after impressing on English Premier League debut at Old Trafford.
National Sportslink understands that the 19-year-old Williams made his first Premier League start against Brighton on Sunday and was Man of the Match in United’s 3-1 win.
Man Utd fans are currently sharing a tweet which suggests Williams might be on the verge of establishing his status as the club’s bad boy. But United fans have noticed that the young full-back seems to have a ruthless streak in him to go alongside his playing ability.
It feels like the kind of attitude United have been lacking in their team for years.
His cousin is super featherweight boxer Zelfa Barrett whose record currently stands at 23-1. It shows that a ruthless streak exists within the Williams family.
He certainly isn’t afraid of pushing his weight around or going toe-to-toe with opponents, as we’ve already seen on several occasions during his brief professional career.
In a pre-season friendly against Accrington Stanley, Williams was sent off for headbutting captain Sean McConville when the 30-year-old aimed a punch his way.
And he showed his fighting spirit again on his full United debut against AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League last month, squaring up to Dani de Wit.
Clearly, then, Williams isn’t bothered about pushing around footballers a lot older and more experienced than himself – and this will certainly help to endear him to the Old Trafford faithful, who want fearless young players with a bit about them.
The England Under-20 international also threw Callum Hudson-Odoi into the stands during United’s recent Carabao Cup victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Fans are loving the attitude that the youngster has when he’s out on the pitch. read their reactions
