De Gea left shocked by how much Ross County boss Kettlewell looks like him
David de Gea was seemingly stunned at his uncanny resemblance to Ross County manager Stuart Kettlewell after a hilarious post on Twitter on Monday.
The Manchester United goalkeeper tweeted a photo of Kettlewell speaking on Sky Sports before his side’s game against Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership, accompanied with a ‘stunned face’ emoji.
With more than 8,000 retweets by midnight, it certainly garnered a reaction online – and even de Gea’s team-mate Marcus Rashford responded with a couple of laughing emojis.
The County boss sports a uncannily similar hairstyle and beard combination to de Gea, and admitted after the game on Monday that he might have found his lookalike.
‘So I’m led to believe I think maybe it’s my doppelganger of whatever they say!’ he said after a 1-0 victory for his side on their return to top-flight action.
‘Fortunately enough I’m not a social media guy so that one’s a wee bit wasted on me!’
Fans online couldn’t help but laugh at the resemblance too, with @Prime_Utd joking: ‘Never knew you were Man United #1 and manager of Ross County, Dave?’
Another user, @ArotGuha, took a sly dig at de Gea’s recent form by saying: ‘That explains the recent dip in form Dave, mans (sic) doing two full time jobs.’
De Gea, meanwhile, is still in training as United prepare for their Europa League last-16 second-leg clash against LASK on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils have a five-goal lead going into the game at Old Trafford, with one foot firmly in the quarter-final stages next week.
Last week, United qualified for the Champions League next season, with de Gea keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory on the final day of the Premier League season against Leicester City.
