Crystal Palace make classic mistake with Frank/Ronald de Boer mix-up

To herald the arrival of their new manager, Crystal Palace shared a video that featured a succession of stats pertaining to Frank de Boer's illustrious playing career.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned tweet -- which invited Palace fans to "get to know Frank de Boer a little better" -- was chock full of pictures of the Dutchman's twin brother, Ronald.

Thankfully, Ronald has become accustomed to the perpetual confusion and even joked that there may well be a good reason why images of Frank are so hard to come by, before later adding that his brother's playing stint at Barcelona foreshadowed his move to the Selhurst Park dugout.

And before you ask, yes, it would appear that the de Boers share a joint sibling Twitter account, which is slightly odd in itself.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
