The lifelong United supporter has made a name for himself taunting other players after getting sent off, mocking Erik ten Hag for making time wasting accusations and bestowing his teammates with various nicknames. But outside of football he’s naturally hilarious, as fans have seen from Newcastle’s latest YouTube video.

The Club posted a video showing the behind-the-scenes of new signing Harvey Barnes’ first couple of days, exploring Philadelphia as the team prepared for their first friendly of the summer series against Aston Villa.
