Brandon Williams has expressed his satisfaction at returning to action in a Manchester United shirt.

Williams started at left-back for United against Cadiz on Wednesday night.

This was Williams’ first appearance at any level since turning out for Norwich late last season.

It was the first time he had represented United in a game since pre-season 2021.

Brandon Williams thrilled to return

Williams returned as part of a makeshift back line with key stars away at the World Cup.

Fellow defender Teden Mengi was also making his first senior appearance in months, due to injury.

The defence struggled early on, with United conceding twice in the first 13 minutes. They became more composed after that.

Williams gave away the free-kick which led to Cadiz’s opening goal. He will feel there is plenty of improvement he can make.

Just getting back out there onto the pitch was success for Williams. The next game against Real Betis will provide another opportunity for him to show what he can do, and be more expansive with his attacking play.

One step at a time. No over reactions here. Williams has taken the first step to get back on track, whatever his future holds, this was an important game for him.
