When the young defender spoke out regarding his rapid development, Brandon Williams has been “perfect” this season for Manchester United, said boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on Sunday.
“I guess it’s from when I was an eight-year-old kid,” the academy graduate said.
“What this club does is drills into you at a young age. It’s part of the culture to get it within you, but you’ve got to keep that controlled and not over the top.”
“This is what the United coaches have offered me over the years. To be honest, it was a wild season for me” he said.
Williams was questioned from what stage he felt he had established himself as a first-team player, he replied: “I don’t think it’s a case of that, since I may drop into the Under-23s at any moment or pick up an injury or something.”
“I just focus on what I am doing. I want to keep training hard, improve on as many aspects as I can, and continue playing as many games as I can for the club.”
Solskjaer, keen to push through the talented young star, added: “This season, it’s a great achievement for him and he’s been perfect for us.”
