Stormzy mistaken for new Manchester United player in national paper

Lukaku was arrested for'excessive noise during what is said to have been a boisterous party at his rented holiday home in Beverly Hills where he has been hanging out with his new teammate Paul Pogba

Stormzy has expressed his anger after being confused for new Manchester United footballer Romelu Lukaku by an Irish newspaper.

The story came with the headline "Lukaku is ready for work", but instead of the former Everton striker, the paper published a photo of English musician Stormzy.

Belgian striker Lukaku completed his £75m to Manchester United earlier this week.

And, to be fair to The Herald, Stormzy is actually wearing a Manchester Untied tracksuit in the photo!

But the Gang Signs & Prayer star took to social media to say he didn't "find this funny". "I don't find none of this amusing btw", he wrote.


Alan Steenson, editor of the The Herald, acknowledged the error and apologised for any offence caused.

This isn't the first time the pair's uncanniness has been pointed out. Earlier, we made an error with a picture of Romelu Lukaku that wasn't him.

Stormzy has since responded to the photo and to the situation with a tweet saying "I don't find none of this amusing btw don't wanna sound like the party pooper who missed the joke". We will keep our eye on the ball in future.

The Herald then tweeted back, saying "Sincere apologies, we don't think it's amusing either".

Talking to Channel 4's Sunday Brunch back in February, the rapper - real name Michael Omari - admitted he shares a certain likeness with the Belgian footballer. I'm not gonna lie - every time I see him I just look at him and think: 'Yeah you do mate!
