Tony Cascarino claims that Man Utd and the Chelsea duo’s careers have gone ‘backwards’

Tony Cascarino believes Brandon Williams and Billy Gilmour’s careers have taken a step back after their loan spell at Norwich.

Manchester United defender Williams and Chelsea midfielder Gilmour were both loaned out to the Canary Islands at the start of the season, but failed to help the club avoid relegation.

Both players have been solid starters this season, but former Chelsea player Cascarino does not feel the experience has helped their careers.

“The boy Gilmour, who came to Norwich, did not do very well at the club and the fans turned against him at the start of the season,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

– He’s a great young footballer, but somehow he has not grown.

‘We talk all the time about young boys going elsewhere and improving – the boy Williams also from Man United – but they have gone back this year.

‘Two players have gone there from big clubs have gone backwards in Norwich.’

Williams returns to United this summer, hoping for a chance to impress future boss Erik ten Hag, while Gilmour faces a battle with others who hired Conor Gallagher to stay at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.

Meanwhile, Norwich have plenty of work to do next season after a record sixth relegation from the Premier League.

‘Why are they so unbalanced from the Championship and Premier League?’ Cascarino added.

‘I understand it’s a different quality. I’ve always talked about goal scorers who get 20 in the Championship probably not getting 10 in the Premier League.

‘I understand that there is a dropout [in quality]but Norwich’s pass is ridiculous.

‘It’s less than a goal in a match, and if you score less than the goal in a match, you’ll definitely go down.’
