Celebrities you had no idea supported Man Utd

Manchester United is undoubtedly one of the biggest football clubs in the world.

Thanks to the accomplishments of Sir Alex Ferguson after taking over as manager in the 1980s, the Red Devils are indisputably the most successful club in England with 20 league titles.

Having also achieved success in the continent by winning the Champions League in 1999 and 2008, it comes as no surprise that the club has amassed tens of millions of fans across the globe.

And while the side have suffered of late after sacking three managers and being led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the club’s historic success ensures it is still a favourite among many celebrities.

Jenna Jameson

The 47-year-old, who has been named the world’s most famous adult entertainment performer, revealed in 2015 that she is a United fan.

Jameson took to social media in a desperate plea to get tickets for the club’s clash with Barcelona at Levi’s Stadium in California.

When questioned if she was a Red she replied to several fans saying: “Yessss. Of course! Huge fan.”

The blonde beauty announced her retirement from the porn industry in 2008 after almost 15 years at the top.

Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather pledged his allegiance to the Old Trafford club in a 2017 interview with former defender Rio Ferdinand.

When asked by Ferdinand which Manchester club he preferred, Mayweather stated he was “rocking with” the one that was historically more successful, confirming him as a glory hunter.

The American also went on to claim he once unsettled Ricky Hatton, a Manchester City fan, by wearing a United jersey to get under his skin at a press conference.

Usain Bolt

Another top athlete to back the red side of Manchester is the fastest man on the planet – Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.

Bolt has never been shy to express his love for United and is perhaps the most avid supporter on the list, having expressed his dream to one day play at Old Trafford.

He received an honorary shirt with the number 9:63 on the back in 2012 in reference to his record-breaking 100m final time, and more recently was spotted talking to Sir Alex Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov at the Theatre of Dreams.

Kim Jong-Un

Yes. You read that correctly. The dictatorial leader of North Korea is a massive Red Devils fan.

Kim Jong-Un was reported by The Mirror in 2014 to have ordered state TV to broadcast their matches.

Corriere dello Sport later claimed in 2018 that the leader even vetoed the sale of North Korean prodigy Han Kwang-Song to Tottenham and Liverpool in an attempt to aid his beloved United.

Tyson Fury

Another boxer on the list is Manchester-born Tyson Fury.

The heavyweight champion of the world even took to social media to issue a wake-up call to the struggling side, before offering to give a motivational speech to the players in the dressing room.

Fury said: “We are absolutely getting smashed out there and I think partly it’s because it doesn’t seem to me like you’re digging in deep to try to win these games.

“I think me and Patrice [Evra] are going to have to come down to training to give you some of that [clenches fist], give you the hard word what you need.”
