Manchester United star Adnan Januzaj starts following Liverpool fan account on Twitter

The most confusing development of the day may have been Manchester United's Adnan Januzaj following a Liverpool fan account.

Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has bemusingly begun following a Liverpool fan account on Twitter.

The Belgian international started following LFC Photo account, which last tweeted on in May - a photo of Steven Gerrard.

The previous accounts Adnan Januzaj began following were new Manchester United teammates Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Januzaj is highly rated at Manchester United but is on the fringes of the club's first team after Memphis Depay's big money signing over the summer.

He may be heading out on loan from the club this summer, with the Sunderland Echo reporting Sunderland are holding talks with the Red Devils over his signature.

A decision to follow a Sunderland account may have made some sense then, but Liverpool makes none at all.

The winger could have the obvious excuse he was hacked, and this may yet be the most logical explanation behind his sudden interest in Manchester United's bitter rivals.
