British rapper Stormzy hasn’t failed to hide his allegiance towards Manchester United.

The 24-year-old appeared in a promotional video with Adidas to celebrate Paul Pogba’s £89 million move to Old Trafford in 2016 and discussed his admiration for the Red Devils in an interview with Soccer Bible.

“Do you know what yeah, people give me stick for it, but it was the whole being a seven or eight year old kid and there being this team who wore a red kit, had a massive stadium and would come out every week winning matches and winning titles,” he said.

“There was a certain spirit and energy about them that just gripped me, before I even knew what dedicating your life to a team meant. I just thought, ‘Yeah I like this team, I want to be a part of what’s happening here’.

“So yeah, I was gripped by the fever from a young age."

Stormzy tweeted after meeting Benjamin Mendy

So it’s hardly surprising that Stormzy wasn’t thrilled with the idea of meeting a Manchester City player.

The artist is in Minnesota for the Super Bowl and while there, he ran into Man City’s injured left-back Benjamin Mendy.


Man City posted a video of the pair together and it’s safe to say that Stormzy, while pleased to meet Mendy, wasn’t enthralled with the Citizens using his name.

“F*** Man City lol why did you even post this i told you It’s still f*** da opps. But big up my bruddah @benmendy23 good to meet ya good peoples 😅,” he tweeted.


Man United fans react

Unsurprisingly, the tweet went down well with Man United supporters.

Man United defeated Huddersfield on Saturday

Stormzy will have been pleased with Man United’s latest result, a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday that was the perfect response to the midweek defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez scores the goals as the Red Devils reduced Man City’s lead at the top of the Premier League table to 13 points.

"We always had control of the game, but at half-time it was 0-0,” Mourinho told BBC Sport  afterwards. “I guess we had around 85 per cent possession in the first half but it was not enough. 

“We kept doing the same in the second and even at 1-0 we were totally in control. Our defensive line was far from the danger areas.

"We had to be patient but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure. We had to break down the Berlin Wall organised so well by David Wagner.”
