Manchester United defender Ro-Shaun Williams ended last season strongly and was named in the Team of the Tournament in the ICGT trophy, following the conclusion of the league programme, as the Reds lifted the prize.
The Under-23s centre-back was naturally disappointed with the overall 2017/18 campaign, with the team relegated to Premier League 2 Division 2, but was determined to return for pre-season training with a positive frame of mind.
“Personally, I think I’ve not had the best of seasons,” he admitted to ManUtd.com recently.
“Last year, I was out with an injury, so it was about staying fit but I’m getting on now and it’s a big time for me.
“I’ve got to really push to get towards the first team or get the best career I can. I felt like I was getting into form and have got to continue that into next season and hopefully be right at it, showing everyone what I can do, what I have and how I can progress.
“If I work hard and do what I can, I can go anywhere I want to,” he added.
“I’m feeling better now and definitely past all my injuries. I feel I’ve become one of the leaders in the group and just want to carry that on.”
The local lad turns 20 in September and was on the first-team bench on a couple of occasions during Louis van Gaal's reign at Old Trafford.
A defender blessed with speed and a commanding physique, Williams is out to make his mark upon returning for pre-season training.
