The on-loan Manchester United star played in the Canaries’ 4-0 loss against West Ham on Sunday and responded to the allegations that supporters had tried to visit his property with two strong messages on social media. 

He pictured himself giving the middle finger while at home on his story with the caption ‘What a beautiful day. Easy up Norwich City.’ 

Williams then posted a picture of his dog outside in the garden – writing: ‘To all the fans who followed me home he’s always awake.’ 

He also posted a handful of laughing emojis, before uploading a photo of his second dog, with the caption: ‘She’s always awake too.’

It is understood a small group had been driving behind Williams in Norwich City following the game but did not arrive at his property.

Williams joined Norwich last summer in a deal until the end of the season and has been one of their most impressive players in this campaign – featuring 29 times after establishing himself as the first choice left-back under boss Dean Smith.

However, he was not able to prevent the club’s relegation to the Championship, which was confirmed after last week’s 2-0 loss to Aston Villa.

Some fans have shown sentiment towards Williams despite the recent allegations against him, with a group pictured holding up a banner asking him to stay with the club next season to help them fight for instant promotion.

Williams’ future is unclear but he is expected to return to Old Trafford when his Norwich deal ends in two weeks’ time. 

He will have a chance to impress incoming United boss Erik ten Hag when he arrives at Old Trafford in July, although it remains to be seen whether the defender will be part of the squad next season.

Williams has played 50 times in all competitions for United. He joined the club as a seven-year-old back in 2008.
