Mick Mills, an Ipswich Town great, believes that Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams is demonstrating his versatility.
The 23-year-old left-back came through Manchester United’s academy levels before joining Ipswich on loan this season.
Williams has appeared in nine games for Ipswich so far, and Blues boss McKenna has deployed the Red Devil loanee as a right-back in many outings.
Mills believes Williams took advantage of the opening presented by McKenna and believes the left-back has demonstrated his versatility.
Williams’ versatility, according to the Ipswich great, will assure him lots of game time, something McKenna has promised Manchester United.
‘What’s positive for the management is that the player took advantage of opportunities.
“He played right-back, he played left-back and he played right-back; he is just showing that he can go into the team in many different positions, which will offer him plenty of minutes, which obviously the manager has promised Manchester that he will have.”
Williams was instrumental in Ipswich Town’s 3-0 victory over Hull City on Tuesday, propelling the Tractor Boys to the top of the Championship table.
“He has taken Brandon on loan and you have to almost assure the club that he is coming to, if it is a big club like it is, that you will play the player” , Mills told BBC Radio Suffolk.
“You can’t take them if you can’t play them, but he had the opportunity.”
