Football fans are loving the 'name a weird football fact that doesn't seem real' game


Football is filled with weird and wonderful facts.

For example, did you know that before Sir Alex Ferguson took over Manchester United in 1986, Aston Villa were more successful than the Red Devils?

Fast forward 30-odd years and United are now the proud owners of 20 league titles - more than any other club in English top-flight history.

Here's another one: Zlatan Ibrahimovic has played for six clubs that have won the Champions League throughout his career.

The 37-year-old has been at Ajax, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, AC Milan and most recently Man United - and yet he's never won the trophy himself.

Let's do one more. In the inaugural 1992/93 Premier League season, Norwich City finished third behind Man United and Arsenal with a goal difference of -4. How is that even possible?

Some facts in football are so outrageous they don't seem real, and there's a Twitter thread doing the rounds at the moment that features loads of them.


The original tweet asked users to "name a weird football fact that doesn't seem real" and it's received hundreds of responses.

Just to kick things off, @AssombalongaSZN revealed that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is actually 6' 4" tall.

Here are some of the best responses (check out the thread HERE).
