Manchester United players have been keeping everyone’s spirits up this week with their antics on social media.
The team has been fantastic throughout the lockdown, supporting charities and reaching out to fans with live Q&A’s, photos and videos of what they have been up to in isolation and responding to questions on social media.
It has also been an opportunity for some of the players to show their cheeky side, with funny stunts and posts to keep fans entertained.
Nemanja Matic has had fans ROFL’ing after trolling Romelu Lukaku during a live Instagram chat.
Lukaku was in the live session with former Arsenal player Thierry Henry when a comment from Matic’s official Instagram account appeared saying ‘Shut up Romelu’.
