Jan Michael Williams is certainly one of the bright young talents in Trinidad and Tobago and has a big future ahead of him, as he seeks to follow in the footsteps of rich history of Trinidad and Tobago goalkeepers.
Following another great performance for his club W Connection, the 22 year old goal keeper humbly said, “The team really performed creditably, and I was just doing my part to ensure we got the result we needed, and we were successful, so my performance was part of a great team effort,” said the modest goalkeeper.
When pressed about his own form, the soft spoken young man said, “It is my desire to play at the highest level, I am of the belief that I am a class player, and I have what it takes to be on the world stage, the Caribbean Club Championships is really a good medium for me to prove my worth and I think we came up against a quality team in the Puerto Rico Islanders and I was able to keep a clean sheet under some pressure.
When asked about his current form, he told ttptoleague.com, “I have always heard the saying that form is temporary and class is permanent, and I believe I am a class player, so even when I may not be at my top form, I can still put out a good performance,” however, he was quick to point out that he is still on a learning curve, “I am not ashamed to say I still have a lot to learn and the more games I play, I am sure I could only get better, I am always willing to take advice, and I am looking forward to the upcoming Digicel Cup which I know will be another learning experience for me, and it will all help me to eventually reach the level where I want to be at.”
Williams is hoping, W Connection remains on course to go on to become Caribbean Champions, he said, “At the beginning of the season one of our goals at W Connection was to once again become Caribbean Champions, and I think the team is at a point now where we all are hungry for it and we will be all working hard to achieve that goal, when the next round of competition comes around.”
