Tom Cleverley occasionally plays in midfield for Manchester United and occasionally doubles as a punch bag for frustrated United supporters. 

Cleverley was a constant source of anger during Manchester United's disappointing season last term. The English midfielder was typically targeted for his middling performances and backward/sideways passing. 

Therefore, when rumours surfaced that Aston Villa were set to scoop up Cleverley for £8 million, per John Percy of The Telegraph, United supporters were quick to celebrate his impending departure.
