“He is a player that the fans want to be much more effective. But the one who has to be asked about the importance of Iñaki Williams is the coach of the opposing team. They will tell you ‘please, don’t let him play ‘ not only because he can score a goal, but not because of everything he generates around him. And the opponents fear him”.
