The next Cristiano Ronaldo, ladies and gentlemen.

Manchester United’s trip to Stoke City didn’t get off to the best of starts as Bojan Krkic scored an early opener for the home side.

The Spaniard was able to tap in the after Memphis Depay handed Stoke a Christmas gift with a horrendously executed diving header backpass that Glen Johnson easily picked up in the United box.

He calmly drew in De Gea before sliding it back to Bojan who coolly slotted it home.

Unsurprisingly, the good people of social media were relentless with their abuse of Depay after his abysmal mistake.
