Willy Kambwala made his debut for Manchester United in the match against West Ham. This brilliant young defender has impressed Manchester United fans with his maturity and readiness. Due to injuries, Erik ten Hag had to call up footballers from the U21 team, and one of them was Kabmwala. The young Frenchman impressed playing for the youth team of Manchester United, and the Dutch expert had no doubts whether to put him in the first XI.

‘So we had five centre-backs who started the season. Today we had three or four who were ill or injured. And then you go and swap positions in the team.'- he said, as quoted by METRO!

The Dutchman emphasized that Kambwala has enormous potential, but it is also necessary for him to work to realize his potential.

‘But he makes a good impression in training and during games of the Under-21s. So we decided to play him. I think he has shown he has the capabilities.

‘I think his performance was very solid. You can see has a very bright future. Of course he has to work on himself, but you can see his potential and we are very pleased, I think, with his performance.’

Modern center-backs today also possess technical qualities. Erik ten Hag believes that the young Frenchman owns them.

As we’ve seen in this game, I think we have we seen many skills for a modern centre-back and as I say, I’m very pleased with his performance.’

The Dutchman asks the fans to be with the club in these difficult moments. After a previously excellent debut season, Erik ten Haag cannot be happy with the performances of his team this season.

‘I am sure they are very disappointed in us and we have to put things right and do things different.

We appreciate all the time they are supporting us. With all the setbacks this season, they are all the time behind us and we really appreciate that. Of course we need any help but first of all I and the team have to do it.’
