Brandon Williams is in a ‘furious’ exchange with a Man Utd teammate after being blamed for a goal

According to reports, during the match at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Manchester United full-back Brandon Williams was heard swearing at teammate Tom Heaton after the latter was blamed for conceding a goal just before half-time.

Erik ten Hag’s team had a strong start to the game, and after 24 minutes, they were rewarded with a goal scored by defender Diogo Dalot from an impressive long-range effort.

However, Dortmund took advantage of some lax defending in the final stages of the first half.

Donyell Malen scored two quick goals in the 43rd and 44th minute, with the second goal leading to a heated argument between Williams and Heaton.

The goal seemingly resulted in tension between the two teammates, which was evident in the on-pitch confrontation.

That’s according toThe Mirror, who suggest Williams appeared to say, “It’s your f*** up” when goalkeeper Heaton blamed the 22-year-old defender for playing Malen onside,

As depicted in the footage above, a misplaced pass from Victor Lindelof put Manchester United in a precarious position.

Within a mere 18 seconds after Dortmund equalized, Donyell Malen, positioned perfectly, received a pass from former United loanee Marcel Sabitzer and calmly tapped the ball into the net with his second touch.

The intense moment immediately following the goal shows an animated Brandon Williams venting his frustration, likely due to the disappointment of conceding the goal so quickly after equalizing.

The tension and emotions on the field were palpable during this critical phase of the match.

Manchester Evening News journalistSamuel Luckhurst, who attended the game in Las Vegas, said of the incident: “Got heated all of a sudden. Heaton and Williams had a blazing row after Dortmund’s second. Looked like Williams said ‘It was your f**k up.'”

Ahead of Sunday’s pre-season clash against Dortmund, Williams said he was relishing the chance to prove himself ahead of the new campaign.

“It’s my first pre-season in three years,” Williams told Manchester United’sofficial websiteafter their 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid.

“The other pre-seasons I’ve been injured so I’ve come back hungry and I’m enjoying the tour, and enjoying getting to know the new players coming in as well.

“It’s good to be together as it’s about making that team spirit going into the season stronger. It helps when you’re on the pitch if you know a player off the pitch as well.

“So it’s good to speak to some of the foreign players, getting to know their culture, and even the younger boys who’ve come up and done really well.”

He added: “Those who’ve come up might be shy so it’s important to speak to them and get that relationship. It’s been an enjoyable week so far and we’ve got one game to go.

“You’ve just got to get ready for the first game of the season. You never know, you might be starting – football can change so quickly so you have to prepare yourself as best you can and get involved with the team.”
