Of Course North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un Is A Manchester United Fan
Get the best email in soccer.
It’s really no surprise. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a Manchester United fan. What else would you expect from a man as successful as the Supreme Leader? The two are a perfect match.
Manchester United won the first Premier League title in 1993. Kim was able to drive a car by age 3.
Manchester United has won three Champions League titles. Kim won a yacht race at age 9.
Manchester United has won a record 20 league titles. Kim scaled a 9,000-foot mountain in leather dress shoes and a pea coat.
Manchester United is the most popular English club in the world and ranks third on Forbes’ list of most valuable sports franchises. Kim is friends with NBA rebound master Dennis Rodman, AKA The Worm.
Manchester United has a devastating attack with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Henrik Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. Kim has a devastating attack with the likes of nuclear-tipped ICBMs.

Kim Jong-un isn’t the first globally despised figure to root for an EPL club. In fact, Arsenal has the Red Devils beat in this arena. Two known Gooners are the now-deceased Osama Bin Laden and the presumably still alive Piers Morgan. Oh and one of the crazy conspiracy theorists from History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens.”
To the Burnley fans now following me: I'm the Nick Pope who ran the UK government's UFO project, not your goalkeeper! And I support Arsenal.— Nick Pope (@nickpopemod) September 11, 2017
But none of those Arsenal fans had a nuclear arsenal. So, uh, good luck Jose Mourinho. No pressure.
