Manchester United has a fan in North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, if reports in English news producers the Mirror, and the Manchester Evening News are to be believed.

According to them, the leader of the hermit state has "ordered state TV to broadcast the matches".

What is more is that citizens will not only get to watch Manchester United games but ones from the German Bundesliga as well!

Real or fake that is up to you to decide, but you cannot deny that some of the photos in the articles are pure comedy.
