More bad news for Manchester United as reports say North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is a big fan

Lets hope he doesn't make a bid to take over...

It's been a pretty terrible week for Manchester United following their humiliating 4-0 defeat to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup. We must think of the poor supporters though, they've been getting a level of abuse that they haven't been subject to in over 20 years so it must be a tough time for them.

United are a global brand with millions of fans around the world and if reports are to be believed, their popularity has even reached North Korea.

The Manchester Evening News are running a story today suggesting that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is a Manchester United supporter. Yes, this charming gentleman right here...

And according to reports, his love for United is something he now wants to share with the rest of his country. North Korea has very strict policies on the media, and only what has been sanctioned by the state can be searched for online, listened to or seen on TV but Jung-Un is such a fan of the Red Devils that all of United's games will be broadcast on state TV.

Other shows available to North Koreans include programmes on how to ride a horse and how to play golf. Maybe MUTV should follow suit and make a show called how to defend against League One opposition.
