Trump spearheads mass defection of US Man United fans to Man City

For American soccerball fans, the beautiful game usually takes a backseat on Thanksgiving as they tuck into some turkey with the family and sit down for the traditional NFL game whilst worrying about the kill frenzy that is America’s REAL national holiday – Black Friday.

But a bizarre moment in President-elect Donald Trump’s Youtube address to this divided nation has provoked a bout of soul-searching amongst many United fans who were already dreading this get-together after the recent general election in the states.

So far, so normal as the video goes but pay close attention to a familiar face some 55 seconds in.

Why, it’s none other than Andy Cole holding a ‘One United USA’ scarf with some fans making the pilgrimage to the Theatre of Dreams®.

With Trump being apparently endorsed by the former United great, fans of the Red Devils have been deserting in their droves.

For some, the leap to those distant cross-town rivals in a city they’ve never been to proved a step too far but we’ve heard reports — unconfirmed as of yet — of a spike in followers for City’s MLS franchise New York City FC Twitter account as Reds, presumably wiping their vomit away, choose the least unappealing way of registering their disgust.

We tried to contact popular NYCFC ‘firm’ The Third Rail for further comment but their spokesperson was too busy berating their extended family for the way they voted on November 8th to chat.
