He tweeted: “Scrambled egg and mashed potato. Wow. Thanks for lunch @ManUtd.”Jake Humphrey cried foul over the meal he was served at Old Trafford during the Red Devils’ clash with Southampton
But United’s Theatre of Dreams is far from being the only football ground to have received a kicking for its food.
Twitter account @FootyScran is dedicated to finding the nastiest nosh – as well as the nicest – on offer at stadiums across the country.

BEST – Chicken Gyros, £7Fans of this South London side can tuck into this tasty-looking Greek-inspired kebab
Monster burger, £5.50

Cheesy chips, £4
Fans get a real Brum deal at the Championship club – this portion of pricey chips with a slice of plastic cheese is a relegation candidate
Hot Dog, £5.50

St Albans FC
A cheeseburger that was bought by a punter at the Hertfordshire club left quite a lot to be desired – including half its bun

Nairn County FC
Good Pie In A Roll, £2.50

Double cheeseburger in a hot dog roll, £5
