Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un was ALWAYS going to be a Manchester United fan.
The 31-year-old’s love for the traditionally communist colour that the Red Devils wear almost certainly played a part in his devotion to the Old Trafford outfit, and so, too, must have his love for Wayne Rooney.
The communist leader adores watching Louis van Gaal’s side play – despite their dismal start to the season – and he now wants to make sure that the rest of his country can share in the *enjoyment.*
According to The Mirror, Kim has reportedly ordered state TV to broadcast United’s future matches on national television as part of a scheduling revamp that will also see shows that teach viewers how to ride a horse and play golf.
If the rumours are true then Kim, who has recently become pals with off-the-wall former NBA star Dennis Rodman, will be airing United’s matches illegally.
Kim Jong Un wants Man United games to be shown on North Korean tv. Gonna take a lot of editing to make it look like United win a game #MUFC

There is a continual battle to gain access to Premier League rights, with the likes of BT & Sky Sports shelling out over £1 billion each year.
"Nobody has the rights to broadcast Premier League football in North Korea so if this is happening then it is copyright theft, plain and simple," a Premier League spokesman told The Daily Star.
However, with a reputation such as his, Kim surely won’t be too bothered about broadcasting rights.
In fact, the toughest questions he’s sure to face will be from the general republic, asking: “Why couldn’t you have supported City?”
