The cheeky Frenchman wrote: “Bro, talk to me please!
“The world need to know the truth, same lips, same front head”
He then tagged the official Manchester United and Tottenham pages into the post and added a ‘daddy’ and ‘son’ hashtag.
The picture attracted lots of responses on Instagram and clocked up over 200,000 likes in just a couple of hours.

Not taking it lying down, Rio Ferdinand responded by posting a superimposed picture that insinuated that he was taking young Evra out for a stroll.
The BT Sport commentator affectionately refers to Evra as ‘Lil Patty’ and made sure to use the hashtag, which Evra responded to with a crying face and baby bottle.
Ferdinand then said: “It’s Sunday and you respond like this”, with a shrugging shoulder emoji.
Fans and footballers alike responded to Ferdinand’s post and were appreciative of the pair’s banter.

The pair regularly trade insults and banter across social media and their relationship was shown at Michael Carrick’s testimonial.
Evra made sure he got the camera on him after Ferdinand had called him out, he said: “I don’t know what he’s talking about on Instagram because I didn’t see it yet but people are saying he’s killing me.
“I swear, when Rio was playing he was not that fit. Now he’s even got some abs.
“He was never that fit when he was playing!”
