There is a bit of a resemblance so I can sort of understand where they’re coming from – obviously I’m a much more attractive guy, though!“I will be following him more closely from now on – my doppelganger.” Topics Share on Pinterest Huddersfield news Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action Share on Twitter Share via Email Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Read more Premier League Reuse this contentlast_img
