Brandon Williams shocked his dad by buying him a new Mercedes for his birthday.

The teenager has broken into the Manchester United first team this season and used his wages to treat his dad.

Williams is understood to earn around £40,000-a-week at Old Trafford and purchased the 4×4.

Footage was shared on social media which showed the player’s dad walking through his back garden.

He was greeted by the black Mercedes before the family shouted: “Happy Birthday” as he pointed at the car and said: “That one? Seriously? I’ve gone all shaky.”

Williams approached him with the keys but his father was still in disbelief.

“Are you joking me?” he said. “Are you taking the p***?”

Williams is Manchester born and his mum runs a cafe in Harpurhey Market.

The full-back has revealed that his family didn’t believe him when he was first called up to the United squad.

He travelled with the senior squad for the first time for their memorable away game with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last year.

“It was just excitement. I rang my family straight away, but they didn’t believe me!” he said.

“I had to convince them and then I had to go and get my suit and get ready.

“It was my first time travelling with the first team, so I didn’t know until about three hours before the flight. It was something new, something different for me.

“I was seeing everyone up close, seeing how they prepare for games, and seeing it up close, I’d never seen Man United before so it was a special night.”

Williams signed a new long-term contract at Old Trafford back in October having made 12 Premier League appearances.
