Man Utd unhappy with Brandon Williams for comments made about Man City after treble win
| Last updated
Manchester United say comments made by Brandon Williams in the immediate aftermath of Manchester City's Champions League final win over Inter Milan are "not welcomed."
The 22-year-old defender took to his Instagram story on Saturday night to mock City's latest achievement in their treble-winning campaign, saying: "Nobody wants a sloppy seconds."
He also took aim at former United defender Rio Ferdinand for congratulating City players on their success while on punditry duty for BT Sport.
"Bet you don't congratulate if you was player keep the same morals," he wrote. "Too face [sic] are boring."

It didn't stop there, either. He continued: "You don't praise. Simple as. Fakes for [money emoji]," before adding: "Attention on this [post] rather than celebrating [nibble]."
Williams, who has struggled for first-team minutes since returning from a season-long loan spell at Norwich, has since been reprimanded for his actions.
United are said to be "disappointed" with Williams for the above comments deemed "not welcomed", according to ESPN.
Ahead of the final in Istanbul, Ferdinand said Pep Guardiola’s achievements have surpassed former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "What Pep’s doing, the style of football and how he’s transcended the game and changes the game as and when it suits him.
“You can’t do anything but respect greatness like that. He doesn’t even need this [Champions League] trophy but it will shut up a lot of people who are chatting a lot of rubbish about how he needs this to be considered great.
“I don’t think he needs this. I genuinely think he is the best coach of a football team that I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. Who puts something on the pitch, lays it out and coached them to play a certain way and the whole pyramid of football tried to do it?"

The whole football pyramid didn’t change their style of football for Sir Alex Ferguson or Carlo Ancelotti.
That’s Pep’s greatest legacy” #Pep #ReInventingTheGame pic.twitter.com/2X9CelJeJK
