Man Utd fans in stitches as 6ft 5in Wout Weghorst is too tall for camera and interviewer comes up with unusual solution | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans were left in stitches after footage emerged of an interviewer coming up with an unusual solution to speak with giant striker Wout Weghorst.

The on-loan Dutch international, 30, had failed to score in his first two outings for United after joining from Burnley.

But Weghorst got off the mark in midweek in the 3-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg win over Nottingham Forest, leading to Red Devils legend Roy Keane heaping praise on him.

The star also started last night’s 3-1 victory over Reading in the FA Cup.

Afterwards, Weghorst stopped to be interviewed by a waitingpresenter in the media mixed zone at Old Trafford.

However, the giant 6ft 5in forward’s huge frame proved to be a problem as she struggled to fit him in the frame.

That was before the reporter holding the mic had a lightbulb moment, and she proceeded to turn the camera so the shot was vertical instead of the traditional landscape.

One fan responded to a tweet sharing the clip: “Wout Weghorst was too tall for the interview camera!”

Another wrote: “LMAO why did she flip it like that?”

While the rest of the feed was filled with crying and laughing emojis in the comments.

This amusing incident comes just weeks after Weghorst was involved in another hilarious incident that left fans in stitches at an error from Sky Sports.

The TV company doctored up a photo of him in the club’s colours to show on their starting line-up graphic ahead of his debut against Crystal Palace.

That is despite United reportedly providing them with everything they needed to show a genuine one.

But instead of using a real one, Sky instead used photo-editing software and super-imposed his head onto someone else’s body.

And many eagle-eyed fans believe that the mystery body, visibly a lot smaller than Weghorst, was in fact former United ace Juan Mata, who is now at Galatasaray in Turkey.
