Ryan Giggs hopeful to add Neco Williams to his side


Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs is hopeful Liverpool youngster Neco William will play for his Wales International team amid England's interest

Williams has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign under Jurgen Klopp and recent reports have suggested England are aware of the progress being made by the full-back.

The Wales Under-19 defender has made a big impact at Liverpool this season.

And Ryan Giggs who manages the welsh senior ranks has admitted worries over interest from the Three Lions regarding the quality of the youngster.

"Neco has come through the [Welsh] system. That does not always happen but ideally you want that to happen," Giggs told BBC Sport Wales.

"I think you are always worried when different countries come in and different permutations come in.

"But the likes of [Wales Under-21 coach] Paul Bodin, [Wales Under-19 coach] Rob Edwards and [Wales coach] Robert Page have enjoyed working with him and he has enjoyed playing for Wales.

"Wales will face Austria and the United States of America in friendly matches on 27 and 30th of March respectively and Giggs remained coy on the selection of Williams.

"We are looking at Neco because he is playing for a brilliant team at the moment and he has done really well when he has stepped up," the former United winger added.

"When a player makes a few appearances in such a big club like Liverpool, he is suddenly catapulted into the public eye.

"He is a fantastic player, still young and still learning, but the energy and quality he has shown when he has stepped up into the first team has been really good, so it's exciting."
