The left-back’s mother, Lisa, runs a cafe in Harphurey Market, Manchester, and revealed her son still pops in for the greasy treat every so often.
Hardly the staple diet of a Premier League football, it certainly hasn’t done Williams any harm, with the 19-year-old now a regular feature in the United set-up.
His form has even led to calls for him to be included in England’s forthcoming squad for the Euro 2020 finals, despite his less-than exemplary eating habits.
Mum Lisa told the Star that Brandon had ‘been to the cafe a couple of times’ in the wake of his recent rise to fame.
“He has sausage and egg on toast,” she said. “He’ll probably get it off Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] now I’ve said that!”
Lisa’s cafe on the market stall has been running for the past decade, and is adorned with pictures of Williams, as well as recent reports from matches he’s been involved with.
“I’m very proud of Brandon. He’s done really well,” she added.
“Whenever he’s played everyone comes up and says how well he’s done, and now he’s playing more games it’s happening more. I’m a real proud mum.”
While Williams’ choice of fuel for his hectic first-team schedule is not quite the run-of-the-mill footballers’ food, perhaps there’s something to be said for making allowances.
Real Madrid’s Welsh superstar Gareth Bale previously admitted he likes nothing more than some beans on toast for his pre-match meal.
And former England striker Jamie Vardy would happily guzzle on three cans of Red Bull as well as knocking back a ham-and-cheese omelette before a game.
Perhaps Williams should take the rest of the United team down there…
