Manchester United left-back Brandon Williams has revealed that it was a shocker when he received his first call up to the first team in their last season’s Champions League tie against PSG.
It was William’s first trip away from home with the first team and he couldn’t believe it when it happened.
Speaking on an official United Google Hangout, Williams said: “It was my first time travelling with the first team. I didn’t know until about three hours before the flight. It was something new, something different.
“I was seeing everyone up close, seeing how they prepare for games. I’d never seen Man United before like that, so it was special. It was just excitement; I rang my family straight away. They didn’t believe me! I had to convince them and then I had to go and get my suit and get ready to go!"
On the faith shown in him by Solskjaer and the United coaching staff, the 19-year-old added: “Yeah, you can tell how much game time and impact that young players have, to be honest.
"If you have trust in them they’ll provide, they’ll take the chance.”
Williams who has been a consistent figure in the first team this season had been in the Under-23s before then and has since made 24 appearances for United's first team across all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
