MAR­CUS GOES ON THE AT­TACK WITH BLADES

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

MAR­CUS Wil­liams is glad to be in the reck­on­ing un­der new Sh­effield United boss David Weir and ad­mits the man­ager’s at­tack­ing out­look suits him down to the ground.

The left-back has started the sea­son in great form and is en­cour­aged by the way Weir wants his side to go about their busi­ness.

And the 27-year-old be­lieves his side will be­come a stronger unit de­fen­sively thanks to the ex­pe­ri­ence on hand from the Blades boss.

“The gaffer wants the full-backs to play high up the field and that suits my style of play,” said the for­mer Read­ing and Scun­thorpe defender.

“I have played as an at­tack­ing full-back through­out my ca­reer re­ally; it has only been the last cou­ple of years that I have played in a more de­fen­sive role.

“I am de­lighted to be back in the team hav­ing worked hard to im­press in pre-sea­son.”

Wil­liams, who was on loan at Sh­effield United for much of last sea­son, is rev­el­ling in his time with for­mer Ever­ton and Scot­land man Weir.

“The gaffer is great to work with as a defender be­cause of what he achieved in his ca­reer,” added Wil­liams.

“He knows ev­ery­thing there is to know about de­fend­ing and now we must learn off him and steadily we will be­come stronger as a unit.”
