Manchester United fans were supposed to be enjoying a European away day on Thursday, yet somehow they still found themselves chanting about Leeds United.
The Red Devils drew 1-1 with Club Brugge, but away from the action, the travelling supporters were taking part in their favourite pastime, having a dig at their trans-Pennine rivals.
Man United fans in Brugge today..

The United faithful sang a familiar chorus proclaiming their hate for the Yorkshire outfit.
The irony of United singing about Leeds when they’re supposed to be focused on European competition wasn’t lost on the Elland Road faithful, and they couldn’t help but comment on how obsessed the United fans are.
Many claimed that they were living rent-free in United fans’ heads while others claimed that the Premier League giants were obsessed with their rivals.
Nice to know we’re still rent free despite not being in the prem for 16 years

Others had a laugh at United’s expense due to the gulf in stature between the two clubs.
To be fair, it’s quite embarrassing for fans to be chanting about a club that has been in the Championship for 16 years while in Belgium preparing for a Europa League clash.
Not famous anymore 😂😂😂😂
