A newspaper in Ireland has mistakenly published a picture of Stormzy on a story about Belgian soccer player Romelu Lukaku.

The story, on the cover of Monday's Irish Herald, related to Lukaku's £75m transfer from Everton to Manchester United and was published under the headline "Lukaku Is Ready To Work." The picture shows Man Utd fan Stormzy wearing one of the club's training tops.

At the time of writing Stormzy has yet to comment on the error. However, the mistake is trending on Twitter and fans are not holding back with their thoughts on the subject.







Update: July 10 9:30 a.m. EST. The Irish Herald has issued an apology.

"To be honest, we are totally embarrassed and want to say sorry to all involved and our readers for the error," editor Alan Steenson wrote. "We will keep our eye on the ball in future."

Meanwhile, Stormzy reacted on Twitter.
