Brandon Williams condemns abuse and criticises incorrect media reports

Brandon Williams has had a largely positive season out on loan at Norwich City, playing regularly in the Premier League. He is the only one of Manchester United’s 16 loan players to be doing so.

But it all turned rather sour this weekend, after Norwich’s 4-0 home defeat to West Ham.

Williams’ own words tells his account of what took place after the game.

Williams condemns abuse

Williams says he was abused by Norwich fans and followed after the game. He says it is ‘not right’, and that his commitment to the cause has never been in question.

Williams was reported by The MEN and The Mirror among others to be ‘under investigation’ by Norwich City for a social media post after the incident.

The Manchester United loanee says these reports are incorrect, with ‘no club investigation’ taking place.

Three more games remaining

Williams’ Norwich are already relegated after a tough season. They already looked to be down before his loan was agreed at the end of August.

The Canaries have three more games remaining this season, with one away at Leicester City on Wednesday night. They then travel to Wolves, before facing Tottenham at home on the final day.

Williams, 21, has started 23 Premier League games this season and played in 28 in all competitions.

He was recently praised by Norwich boss Dean Smith who told  Norfolk Live the defender had ‘improved a lot’.

A fortnight ago Williams told The MEN: “What I want to do next year is play for Manchester United at left back and that’s my job.

“That’s what I’m determined to do because it’s my life and I’ll do anything for that.”

With Alex Telles’ recent poor displays at left-back, Williams should have a chance to impress in pre-season. This recent incident is just a small bump in the road.
