FANS of Liverpool Football Club have rushed to support Wrexham-born Neco Williams after he suffered online abuse.

The Wales international "blacked out" his Twitter account in response, it is thought, to the abuse he received.

Neco, still only 19, featured in Liverpool's 7-2 thrashing of Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup on Thursday night.

Abuse allegedly came from Twitter users who thought the right back was at fault for Lincoln's first goal.




After the match, fans saw Williams had changed his Twitter profile picture and cover photo to black.

Many were quick to show their support for one of the most promising young players for both his club and Wales.

Twitter user Alfredo tweeted: "Bro i do support you, don't pay attention to few stupid people, the real fans love you and appreciate all you give for the club, keep learning keep getting better because you are the future of Liverpool!!!!"

Narcos097 tweeted: "You did great kid..! Don't let some muppets degrade ya..! You were a constant threat and you'll be even better in the future..!"

"don't use twitter that much i just came here to show you support and let you knw that you'll always be a good player,no matter what other people say."

And Paul "Jester" Winter tweeted: "Make the haters be more motivation. You are a brilliant young player with tons of us behind you. Let us take care of the morons, you let your feet do the talking... Much respect. YNWA."

Another Twitter user called Dejan tweeted: "You are champion! Don't let some negative fans ruin your day, you did well! When you do bad they going to hate you, but as soon as you do good again they will love you, that's just how it is. "You don't deserve any hate!!"

The Wrexham-born starlet was a regular in the Reds squad since the 2019/20 restart when he made his Premier League debut in the 4-0 win against Crystal Palace.

He played enough games to claim a Premier League winners medal and is expected to feature heavily this season as a dependable back up to Liverpool's first choice right back Trent Alexander-Arnold.

His parents Emma and Lee have been watching all Neco's recent games at home in Cefn Mawr due to coronavirus restrictions, which it is now thought will affect sporting fixtures for at least another six months.
