Brandon Williams slams Rio Ferdinand for praising Man City after Champions League triumph

Manchester City won the Champions League last night and Brandon Williams was not pleased.

The Manchester United full-back made it clear that the Red Devils winning the treble first makes them superior.

Sir Alex Ferguson guided Man United to victories in the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup in 1999.

Man City matched the record after securing a 1-0 win against Inter Milan on Saturday to add to their league title and FA Cup.

Williams took to his Instagram stories to write: ‘Nobody wants a sloppy seconds’ referring to the fact Man United achieved the treble first.

The 22-year-old also had a pop at Red Devils legend Rio Ferdinand, slamming him for congratulating Jack Grealish and his teammates on their historic win.

Williams felt the former defender was wrong to praise Pep Guardiola’s side given his allegiances to United.

Williams has been with Man United since 2008 and the reaction coming from the academy graduate is understandable.

However, having a go at Ferdinand, who was just doing his punditry job was unnecessary.

Williams is expected to leave the club this summer having fallen out of favour in recent seasons.

He was left out of Man Utd’s Europa League squad for the season due to injuries and has been linked with Fiorentina.

The Englishman is out of contract next year and played just once this term, coming on for four minutes during the Carabao Cup game against Burnley in December.
