Nico Williams is no longer Iñaki’s brother at Athletic
Nico ceased to be the brother of Inaki In football, of course. I won’t be the one to endanger the union of Inaki and Nico. Not much less. Last season I already wrote that little by little Nico he was going to fight his way into the elite and that one day Inaki would become the brother of Nico. Things didn’t even get that far, but the little brother of the williams He made a name for himself in athletics.
Few question the performance it can deliver, what’s more, many are asking, we’re asking for more minutes to Williams Jr.. MarcelinoFor now, dose. It is true that in recent weeks he has been injured, which for example prevented him from being part of the Spanish U21 team, but when he was at full capacity it is not that he had many departures. . More specifically, he has been in the League 6 times and in the Cup 3. For me, given the performance of the team, they seem to me to be few, really.
Nicholas Williams He returns this Saturday to the field where he traveled last season for the first time with the first team, even if he will not play. In this newspaper, Inaki Ugalderevealed the intentions of Gaizka Garitano around Nico and that was confirmed when he entered that call which I understand will always be remembered by the young player. He couldn’t play, but as he wrote the next day, his brother Inaki on social media: “Yesterday you started showing him the way.” He repeated the call in the duel against Real played on New Year’s Eve without playing a minute, but it was Marcelino who offered him the alternative on Wednesday April 28 against Valladolid. It was his debut as a lion, it was his first step to confirm himself in the Athletic first team.
Hopefully on Saturday the circle of Nicholas Williams with the Estadio de la Cerámica and it was there that he scored his first league goal. Later than ever, it will arrive. At Villarreal he also made his debut as a goalscorer Inigo Cordoba. Nico he scored in the Cup, a brace against Mancha Real and also scored in the Super Cup semi-final against Atlético de Madrid. Indeed, if the smallest williams manages to score in the league, he will be the only player to score in the three official competitions Athletic have played in this season. This would be his particular triple crown.
The brothers scoring a goal in the same match williamsIt would also be a very nice thing. The brothers already did it in their time Beluaste, Arieta and SalinasAnd why can’t they do it? Although this is not the best week to defend the number of Inaki facing the goal. Because if we go by data, yes, the other day in San Mamés against Elche he missed them with all colors, but he is at the moment, data also, the top scorer in the team with seven goals. Insist. It was the verb used by Inaki Williams after Sunday’s game. Good. Insist and refine, I would add. Sharpen the aim. Because everything he generates, everything that helps him focus, everything he does is fine, but the goals are love.
And don’t miss any detail. because the photo of Raul Garcia hug villalibre after his goal, he is fine and says a lot of things, but the sincere embrace that Inaki Williams he hit Gernika’s in the center of the field late in the game, which he also did not neglect. now let it be Marcelino who decides who will start on Saturday at Villarreal. It won’t be a thing of the other Thursday.
