I want to stay and help Athletic Bilbao win trophies, says Nico Williams

Young forward Nico Williams says he wants to stay at Athletic Bilbao for a long time and help them win trophies.

The Spanish-born Ghanaian made his first team debut for Bilbao in April last year and is gradually establishing himself as an important piece of the side.

His elder brother, Iñaki, has been with the club for a longer period and won one title so far. Nico aims to follow in his brother’s footsteps and help the club win more.

Nico’s contract is set to expire in 2024, and Manchester United are said to be interested in him.

“I love Bilbao. I love Athletic Club. I want to be there with my brother and all my teammates. It’s like a family for me. I want to stay in Bilbao,” he said in an exclusive interview with 3Sports.

“I want to win trophies for Bilbao. Bilbao is like a family to me. My brother has won cups there and I want to give more to Bilbao.”

Inaki Williams has gone six years without missing a league game

Inaki recently switched nationality and is now available for the Black Stars. Nico is yet to do so and has so far been playing for Spain’s youth teams.
