This Irish Paper Used A Photo Of Stormzy Thinking He Was Everton Footballer Lukaku

Think your Monday is going shit so far? Think again, because unless you're The Herald, we're gonna say your day can't be nearly as bad as theirs.

The Irish newspaper made a HUGE mishap when reporting on the news that Belgian footballer Romelu Lukaku is in the middle of a £75million transfer from Everton to Manchester United.

They clearly haven't brushed up on their footie knowledge, as the paper used a year-old photo of Grime star Stormzy in their article.

Uh oh.

It appears the paper got confused after spotting a pic of Stormzy wearing the Man Utd away kit at the launch last May, where he posed with David Beckham.

And the mistake was instantly noticed...

It's clearly not the first time this has been done

Stormzy tweeted in 2014 that someone called him Lukaku before, and commented on the apparent resemblance on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch show earlier this year.

Surely this had to pass by a few people before getting the sign off... 

We don't envy whoever published that photo. A response from both Stormzy and Lukaku over the incident has yet to be released.
