Manchester United midfielder Fred and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp have found common ground this week – with both men thinking a journalist looks like infamous drug dealer Pablo Escobar.
Fred Caldeira of Esporte Interativo spoke to Fred following United’s 5-0 win over RB Leipzig on Wednesday and the midfielder had a comment for his moustache.
A press officer says to Fred: “Someone said he looks like Escobar,” before the 27-year-old smiles and rubs his upper lip.
Caldeira shared the footage to social media and joked about being compared to Escobar, but it wasn’t the first time it’s happened.
He was at Anfield on Tuesday night as Liverpool secured a 2-0 win over FC Midtjylland and Klopp had one thing to say.
“Wow! Who is it, what’s the movie about the Colombian drug dealer?” before being told about Escobar.
“A little bit yes! [Laughs] I’ve heard some things about moustaches but no we don’t need to worry about that.”
