Manchester United's embarrassing Chicharito Twitter gaffe

It was not just an embarassing weekend for Manchester United on the pitch, but off it too.

Manchester United just can't put a foot right at the moment. Three defeats in six on the pitch in the Premier League is not exactly the best way to make amends to fans following the farcical transfer window.

Their press office did not have the smoothest of weekend's either, getting top star Chicharito's Twitter ID mixed up with that of a middle-aged American man.

Check it out for yourselves below:

Harmless enough? Fine, except @CH14 is not actually Javier Hernandez' Twitter address, missing an underscore. 

An American with just over 400 followers who did have the address was only too happy to receive a compliment from United's account with more than 1 million.
