Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams has opened up on his hugging incident with Christian Eriksen, saying he “felt like he needed a hug.”
Williams and Eriksen were the centre point of a somewhat awkward but funny exchange when the two played in the Norwich City v Brentford game last weekend.
Eriksen had pulled down Williams while The Canaries were on the counter-attack, leaving Williams angry as the pair ended up on the floor together.
The full-back then looked as though he was about to give the Dane an earful, before hugging the former Tottenham Hotspur and Inter star who suffered a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 which left him fighting for his life.
Brentford ran out 3-1 winners on the day thanks to Ivan Toney’s hat-trick.
