Video: Lukaku Designs New Belgium Mascot…And It’s Reminiscent of Partick Thistle’s

Romelu Lukaku might well be a secret Partick Thistle fan – after designing a new mascot for Belgium’s national team which is rather reminiscent of Thistle’s Kingsley.

The Manchester United forward is currently on international duty with the rest of the Belgian squad but he’s taken some time away from the football pitch to help launch a competition to find the Red Devils a new mascot.

Fans are being asked to design their very own mascot, with the winner’s creation being turned into real life, and Lukaku was amongst some of the players who gave it a go himself.

The gag in the clip is that Lukaku’s drawing isn’t very good – but it definitely reminds us of Partick Thistle’s rather haunting character:

Is it just us or can you see the likeness?

Hopefully this isn’t the start of a trend of unsettling and scary mascots; the world just isn’t big enough for another Kingsley!
