After the underwhelming and almost unbelievable Manchester United vs. Newcastle draw Luis Van Gaal was all bristles at his press conference.
The reporters decided to poke the Dutch bear, and it didn’t turn out so well for them.
As the conference was wrapping up one reporter decided to bring up criticism of Wayne Rooney, who Van Gaal has defended often from media scrutiny.
The boss’ response was curt,
“We don’t speak any more about Wayne Rooney. You have criticised him. I don’t, you.”
The reporter who initially made the comment interjected,
Van Gaal singled him out as he was leaving the conference,
“You too, fat man!”
Earlier Van Gaal explained that he was disappointed that his side ‘threw away’ three points to slip down to sixth in the league table,
‘We threw it away. I am very disappointed. We have to blame ourselves because we could have finished the match much earlier with big chances for Jesse Lingard and (Marouane) Fellaini.
‘We have scored three goals and have one point, nothing more. We had to win but we did not do it.’
With only one victory in the last eight Premier League matches expect Van Gaal to crack more cheeky reporter skulls if things don’t turn around for Manchester United.
