It turns out that Kim Jung-Un has a football-shaped blind spot when it comes to his unmitigated hatred of Western culture – and he's picked a team to match his beloved big red button.
According to The Sun's interview with Antonio Razzi, an Italian senator with close ties to the North Korean despot, Kim refuses to miss a single Manchester United game.
He's also said to believe that there will soon be a influx of North Korean players entering the Premier League, because North Korea is "a country in constant evolution".
But when asked how Kim compares himself to legends like Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs, Razzi replied: "Kim is Kim - he is the only one."
It was first reported that Kim was a Red Devil two years ago, when they were playing poorly under Louis Van Gaal and the Manchester United board were on the lookout for a replacement.
If only they'd cast their eye at a certain leader further afield, we might not be in this mess.
