BRANDON WILLIAMS has written his life story in tattoos – and one day would love to add a World Cup triumph to his body art.
The Manchester United whizkid, currently on loan at Norwich, has a sleeve inked on his arm which depicts the estate in North Manchester which made him.
He also has a roaring lion, as well as an image of him scoring his first career goal inside a giant eye, meant to reflect on that personal highlight.
But Williams, 21, has his sights set on far more achievements to be added to his body display by the time his career is done.
He told SunSport: “I’m telling a story on my arm with my tattoo and when my body is done, it will tell the story of my life.
“The dream would be for it to have a Champions League win there, the Premier League, the World Cup.
“Then there’s stuff off the pitch but with football, I just want to be top of the league, top of different competitions and playing for England.
“It’s been my boyhood dream to represent my country but I’ve got a lot of work to do there and a lot of competition to get past.

“I want to look back on my career and have played hundreds of games at the top level in the Premier League, whether that’s at Norwich, at Man Utd or somewhere else.
“I feel I’m capable of doing that. I’ve showed that I can play in this league this season.”
Williams’ immediate aim is to help the rock-bottom Canaries beat the drop, starting with three points on Saturday at home to Brentford.
Dean Smith has reintegrated the youngster, along with fellow loanee Billy Gilmour, after they were given the cold shoulder by predecessor Daniel Farke.
And Williams has responded with a string of fine performances, in spite of the club’s struggles, that have helped establish himself as a fans’ favourite.
The England Under-21 starlet added: “Under the previous manager, I wasn’t playing as much.
“I felt like me and Billy didn’t get the attention that maybe we were expecting and that we felt we deserved.
“I was thinking to myself, ‘Is this how I want my season to go?’ because I’m not playing and I could be at Man Utd training with some of the best players in the world.
“But then the new gaffer came in and everything changed. He has really helped me.
“I just hope to keep Norwich in the Premier League. I’ve really connected with the club.
“As a collective, I feel we’re really strong and I feel we can do it because everyone is a top player.”
