Earlier today, we covered a story from Sky Sports, in which it was revealed that young Brandon Williams has signed a new long-term Manchester United contract.
The 19-year-old has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the Red Devils first-team and it’s richly deserved too.
We’ve only seen him play twice for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s new-look United but I think we’ve already seen enough to gauge that he should be challenging Luke Shaw for that starting berth all season long.
There’s always something special about watching homegrown talent playing for your club. Williams has come through the ranks at the AON Training Complex and right now, he’s reaping the rewards.
As you’d imagine, the fans were full of praise for the teenager on social media following the news, and many feel he could well take over the starting role in the not too distant future:
For what it’s worth, I wouldn’t bet against him. Williams is hungry to go right to the top and hopefully, this is the start of a long and fruitful United career for the young man.
With this deal now done it means Williams can focus solely on playing football which is obviously what he does best.
Congratulations again, Brandon! Richly deserved.
