Italian senator Antonio Razzi confirmed the crackpot dictator had told him during private conversations of his love for the Red Devils.
But when asked if Kim compared himself to any United heroes such as Eric Cantona or Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Razzi told The Sun: “No, Kim is Kim — he is the only one.”
North Korean wonderkid Han Jwang-song has come into the public domain following an eye-catching start to the season with Perugia in Italy’s second tier.
And Razzi told how Kim believes he will be just the first of many players to come out of the secretive state and shine on the world stage because it is “a country in constant evolution”.
And he expects the Premier League to soon be inundated with North Korean talent.
Razzi is an eccentric figure in Italian politics, who has become well-known in his homeland mainly due to his close friendship with Kim.
