Willy Kambwala praised four Manchester United players following the club’s 2-2 Premier League draw against Liverpool on Sunday.

Willy Kambwala has earned significant praise for his performance against Liverpool in just his second Premier League start.

With injuries to Lisandro Martínez, Victor Lindelöf, Jonny Evans, and Raphaël Varane, Kambwala paired with Harry Maguire for the tie and certainly performed to Erik ten Hag’s standards.

“I’m really proud of the game, of the team, of everyone, of all my teammates as well,” Kambwala told MUTV after the game.

“We didn’t take the three points, so it is still a bit frustrating, and [I’m] disappointed about that because we know we should win the game. We had it under control.”

Kambwala also praised those defending around him, singling out his fellow three defenders, Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and United goalkeeper André Onana, for their good defence.

“We fought really well together. We stick together, we defend well at the back four with the keeper, with everyone, and we know we should keep the three points at the end, but, still, I am really proud of the game and what I could achieve.”

Sunday afternoon marked Kambwala’s first-ever senior start at Old Trafford. He took to the game like a duck to water against Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, with the striker having almost no sniff on goal.

“It’s my job, it’s my passion,” he explained when asked about why he loves defending.

“I know what I need to do on the pitch. I know I need to give everything from the first moment to impress and to enjoy it.

“That’s what I like to do. So yeah, it’s my passion. And I know, like every time I have the opportunity to be on the pitch, I need to give everything to leave everything on the pitch.”

With no news yet on the injury front for United’s four out-of-action centre-halves, Kambwala has proven he can fill in the gap when needed.
