Brandon Williams has become the bad boy Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking for in his Manchester United side.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been banging the drum of rekindling the spirit of old in his new youthful Manchester United side.

The Norwegian has been trying to help his side rediscover the traditions and heritage of a club that appears to have lost its way.

Go back as far as you can United have always had the kind of player that liked to mix it up. Call them a bad boy or a tough nut there has always been one.

A Stiles, a Robson, an Ince or a Keane.

But nobody of late has had anywhere near the tenacity to take an opponent to task in the way any of those players of old have.

Not until now anyway, introducing Solskjaer’s latest academy prospect, 19-year-old Brandon Williams.

He had no qualms about helping Hudson Odi off the field.

Or even going toe to toe with Brighton’s Maupay.

Solskjaer is full of praise for the youngster and thinks he will be hard to displace form the team given his recent performances.

Speaking to the clubs official website,  manutd.com, he said:

“He’s really, really impressed me, I have to say, he’s making it hard to leave him out.”

The fans, however, are not just happy with his performances, they are happy with his no-nonsense style of manhandling the opposition.
