A calamitous campaign under David Moyes last time out has left United fans begging for new signings.
But even for a side that is clearly still under construction, the latest gaffe on the club’s official television channel is absolutely horrendous.

The Red Devils are currently on a tour of America and faced Serie A side Inter Milan in a friendly this morning.
Van Gaal chose an experimental starting line-up, using the 3-4-1-2 formation he has spoken about in recent press conferences.
The only problem was that MUTV completely mixed up the players’ names with their images:

Only Ashley Young and Danny Welbeck were spared and given their correct names.
And the commotion didn’t stop their either, as the FedEx stadium mistakenly referenced United’s home as Old Traddord’.

Unfortunately it’s Juan Mata who is the real loser here.
Imagine people thinking you were actually Wayne Rooney?
