Leeds take 1400 fans to Old Trafford for Man Utd YOUTH match but get trolled by Hannibal Mejbri for Sideshow Bob jibe

's*** sideshow bob'

LEEDS took an amazing 1400 fans to Old Trafford for an FA Youth Cup clash against Manchester United - but got trolled by Hannibal Mejbri.

The vocal supporters packed out the away end for their 1-0 fourth-round defeat.

Dillon Hoogewerf's second-half header proved the difference in a fierce contest that saw six yellows and one red dished out to Leeds' Henri Kumwenda.

This was Leeds' first visit to Old Trafford since Jermaine Beckford secured their 1-0 FA Cup win in 2010.

And they sang throughout the game, singling Mejbri out in particular.

The 17-year-old French midfielder was subjected to taunts of "You're just a s*** Sideshow Bob."

And after the win he took to Instagram to post a photo of the Simpsons character smirking.

The resemblance comes from them both having huge hair, with Mejbri writing: "Good win tonight 1-0 vs Leeds in the FA Youth Cup, through to the next round."

United fans were loving his comeback.

One said: "This guy handles it so cool. Love this kid already."

Another posted: "You can't fail to love him."

A fellow user wrote: "Looks an incredible prospect. Must have been fouled a dozen times. Showed great restraint. Looks the real deal despite his age."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in the crowd to check on the development of his young stars.

The attendance overall for the game was an impressive 4,263.

And United will now face Wigan Athletic at home in the last eight after they beat Birmingham 4-0.

Man Utd face massive financial blow if they miss out on Champions League again next year with sponsors set to pull cash
