Louis van Gaal seemed less than impressed with one of his Manchester United players during his side's draw with Stoke City.

United were held 1-1 at the Britannia, a result that will leave the Dutchman frustrated as United failed to win for the third time in four matches. A sneaky picture taken during the match showing the Dutchman's notes suggest one player in particular could be in trouble.

The words "stupid free kick" appear to have been scribbled down by Van Gaal - however the identity of the free-kick taker was not noted.

A close up of Van Gaal's notes


During the match, the player with the lowest pass accuracy was goalkeeper David De Gea, with just 61.3 per cent completed. When it came to outfield players, Ashley Young was the worst offender with a pass accuracy of 69.6 per cent before he was taken off injured in the 74th minute.

Manchester United's next fixture is in the FA Cup against Yeovil. Watch out for any dead-ball mistakes.
