Kim Jong-Un, North Korea Dictator, Is A Manchester United Fan

He's always been a red but now we have confirmation. Kim Jong-un, communist dictator of North Korea, is a Manchester United fan.


This has been suspected for quite a while, and not just because he shares similarities with a leftie dictator who used to be in the Old Trafford dugout.

But now Kim Jong-un has confirmed his allegiance by demanding all United games be shown on North Korean state TV. The public might have to be braced for abridged matches, though.

In 2010, the transmission for North Korea's World Cup match with Portugal abruptly ended midway through the second-half. Portugal ultimately won 7-0.
