A post on David McNally's official Twitter account insisted he remains 'fully-committed' to Norwich City after a series of tweets that seemed to indicate he had resigned on Saturday evening.

A tweet from McNally's account was posted at 1:01am on Sunday morning with a response to an earlier post which suggested he had resigned, after coming in for strong criticism from supporters on social media following Norwich City's 1-0 Premier League defeat earlier on Saturday to Manchester United, which pushed them closer to relegation.

It read: 'I take back what was said earlier. I remain fully committed to NCFC and to Delia and Michael & I've not resigned. My apologies.'

Neither McNally or the club had made any official announcement after the chief executive's account carried a post in reply to a supporter at 8:35pm on Saturday evening which simply said: 'that's ok and I understand your view. I've resigned tonight and I hope that the club can now progress.'

That tweet provoked a huge response from Canaries fans on Twitter asking him to confirm the resignation.
