Leeds fan photoshopped into Harry Maguire’s tweet and nobody knows why

This really needs explaining, Harry

A Leeds United fan’s face was bizarrely photoshopped into a picture tweeted by Harry Maguire after Manchester United beat Leeds on Sunday.

The Red Devils captain opened the scoring for the away side, before Bruno Fernandes doubled United’s lead at Elland Road in added time of the first half.

However, Leeds scored two goals in quick succession to level proceedings through Rodrigo Moreno and substitute Raphinha.

Ralf Rangnick’s side made it 3-2 in the 70th minute when substitute Fred finished off a well-worked move with a smart finish.

Anthony Elanga – who was struck by a missile during United’s celebrations – secured the victory with a late strike.

It was an important victory for United, who moved four points clear of West Ham United in fifth position.

Following the match, England defender Maguire – or, whoever runs his social media accounts – posted a photo of him celebrating the Red Devils’ opening goal, but people were quick to notice something weird about the photo.

After close inspection, you can see that someone in the photo has been photoshopped in.

Fans were understandably confused by the tweet, even more so considering that the image Maguire uploaded onto Instagram did not contain the photoshop edit.

One person replied: “Bro who’s this?”

Another added: “Here’s the original picture, I have so many questions”.

A third user simply wrote: “???”

It remains unclear as to why this happened, but rest assured if there is an explanation, we will be the first to inform you.

United travel to Madrid to take on Atlético on Wednesday night in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.
