Kim Jong-un 'is a Manchester United fan'

Kim Jong-un 'is a Manchester United fan'”

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is reportedly a massive fan of the Red Devils. Everyone loves a little footy - even if you're a dictator with a trigger-happy nuclear finger.

Kim Jong-un is a Manchester United fan and hopes North Korean players will soon be making waves in the Premier League, an Italian Senator has said.

A close friend of the nuclear tyrant revealed how he loves the attractive game and never misses a major football tournament, claims the United Kingdom tabloid, The Sun.

Antonio Razzi, a politician and member of the upper house of parliament for center-right party Forza Italia, has become well-known for counting Kim Jong-un as a close friend and claims the two regularly converse about football.

However, he said Kim does not compare himself to any United heroes of yesteryear because "Kim is Kim - he is the only one".

The story - admittedly full of paraphrasing, low on actual quotes - claims that in addition to following United, Kim watches every major worldwide tournament and believes North Korean players will soon descend on the Premier League.

Monitoring groups confirmed to Mail Online that Premier League football is regularly shown on KCNA - the country's state-run television channel.

So will Kim Jong-un watch Man United's Champions League return match tonight?

Mourinho's side kick off their European campaign at home to Basel, who won their eighth consecutive Swiss Super League title last season.
