Solskjaer Hints Man Utd’s U18 Captain Brandon Williams Could Get PSG Chance

Manchester United‘s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted Under-18 captain Brandon Williams could be handed a chance to shine against PSG tomorrow night in the Champions League.

The Red Devils travelled to Paris this afternoon for their second-leg round of 16 tie, having lost 2-0 at home to the start-studded French side two weeks ago.

Having been steeped in the tradition of blooding young players at Old Trafford, Solskjaer has included eight academy graduates in his squad for tomorrow night’s game, with full-back Williams one of the youngest inclusions.

United will be without Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez, Antonio Valencia ad Matteo Darmia, who are all injured, whilst Phil Jones is missing through illness.

Moreover, Paul Pogba is suspended, and when asked during his press conference today if any of the youngsters will be given any game time, Solskjaer was quick to mention Williams:

Do you think Williams, or any of the other youngsters making the trip to France, could really impress against the mighty PSG?
