Brandon Williams Hailed As Future Manchester United Captain After His Showing Against Wolves
Brandon Williams has been hailed as a future Manchester United captain following his superb showing against Wolves.
Williams starred for the Reds as they secured a spot in the FA Cup fourth round after beating Wolves 1-0 at Old Trafford.
The 19-year-old played the full 90 minutes on Wednesday night as he recorded his sixth clean sheet in seven games.
He was in confident mood, galloping down the left flank and showed off his 'sh*thouse' side after getting involved in a heated bust-up with Pedro Neto.
The Manchester-born left-back looks like the next big thing to come out of United's famed youth academy after making an instant impact for the first-team.
Williams' performance was the talk of the game with the likes of Gary Neville and Gary Lineker sharing their thoughts on the talented player.

Brandon Williams is so good that Wolves opted to play Traore as far away from him as they could tonight #MUFC

Can remember young defenders coming in and impressing with one or two performances at United. Can't remember a defender coming in and playing as consistently excellent as Brandon Williams who keeps getting better, even up against tough, fast opposition :punch: pic.twitter.com/lr0Y8l4uU0

I don't wanna get to carried away, but Brandon Williams might just be the best left back of all time. pic.twitter.com/ZRsKIySo1k
