MANCHESTER UNITED are unhappy with Brandon Williams’ bizarre dig at Manchester City’s historic treble triumph.
City won their first-ever Champions League trophy on Saturday, shortly after capturing the Premier and FA Cup.
The Citizens have emulated United’s legendary success in 1999 and it seems Williams was left a little bitter by that.
The Red Devils left-back gave an odd rant on social media as he described City’s success as “sloppy seconds”.
Williams posted on Instagram, “No one wants sloppy seconds.”
The 22-year-old then slammed United legend Rio Ferdinand after the BT Sport pundit congratulated Jack Grealish and his City team-mates.
The full-back felt Ferdinand was unfairly praising the club’s rivals given his loyalty to the Old Trafford team.
Williams added, “@rioferdy5 I bet you wouldn’t congratulate if you were.” [a] Player. Keep the same morals. Two faces are boring.
Accordingly ESPNthe club are disappointed by the comments of the former England youth international.
The Red Devils also distance themselves from the defender’s taunts, saying they are “not welcome”.

United have officially declined to comment directly on the matter.
Williams was limited to just one appearance under coach Erik ten Hag this season, at the Carabao Cup, where he played just five minutes.
The academy graduate’s future is uncertain as his contract expires in 2024.
The former Norwich star has recorded one goal and three assists in 51 appearances for the club since being called up to the senior team in 2019.
