Zaha arrives at Old Trafford in Imogen Thomas t-shirt – or did he?

Is it or isn't it? Zaha's 'Imogen Thomas' t-shirt

Manchester United's new signing Wilfried Zaha became a Twitter sensation on Friday after apparently turning up for his medical wearing a t-shirt bearing a picture of a semi-naked Imogen Thomas.

The 21-year-old, who has joined United for a reported £15 million, was snapped arriving at United's training ground in the offending t-shirt - immediately prompting fans to wonder what on earth he was thinking wearing his new team-mate's former mistress on his front.

For those who, like Zaha, missed it, Ryan Giggs was named-and-shamed for a lengthy affair he had with Thomas - a model and former Big Brother contestant.

Giggs successfully obtained a super injunction to stop publication of the affair, but after his name was spread across the internet - and even mentioned in Parliament - his efforts failed and his image as a committed family man shattered.

So, if the girl on Zaha's t-shirt really is Thomas, that's a funny way to try and ingratiate yourself with your new team-mates.

And even if it isn't, it's still a fairly unusual choice of clothing for your first day in a new job...
