Wout Weghorst is so tall, he didn't fit in the frame for a post-match interview
| Last updated
Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst was too tall to fit in the camera frame for a post-match interview following this month's 3-2 defeat to Arsenal.
United's winning run after the World Cup break came to an end at the Emirates Stadium after Eddie Nketiah's dramatic winner late on.
Erik ten Hag's side went toe-to-toe with the Premier League leaders for 90 minutes but came up short, ruling out their chances of joining the title race.
The game was Weghorst's second start since arriving from a season-long loan at Burnley and his first in the league.
Weghorst's Premier League return was a shock one, given United didn't seem to be in for anyone in the January transfer window.
Cristiano Ronaldo's abrupt departure in November and injury issues for Anthony Martial forced the Red Devils to dip into the market and sign a player, unlike anything they have on the books.
The Netherlands international stands at six foot five, making him one of the club's tallest players of all time. He's tied with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in second place but falls one in short of former goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.
One reporter attempted to talk to Weghorst in the Emirates Stadium tunnel but found it a struggle to get him in the full frame.
She fiddled with the camera before turning to the 30-year-old and asking: "Can you be further? You're really tall!"
Weghorst steps further away to help out before the reporter decides to flip her camera and fill portrait. Modern problems require modern solutions.
Since making the move to Old Trafford, Weghorst has become a fan favourite for how often he gets involved in United's overall play.
He scored his first goal in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup and is relishing a second crack at the Premier League after an underwhelming spell with Burnley.
Weghorst explained: "Yeah, I am enjoying it [my time at the club], it goes quickly. It’s three games already played and not much time to enjoy everything.
It’s all about delivering and it’s all about being there and it’s something I try to do, and we all get focused and ready for the next cup game. We go again."
United return to action against Forest in the second leg on Wednesday evening.
Should they avoid a heavy defeat, they'll set up a huge clash with either Newcastle United or Southampton at Wembley next month.
