Louis van Gaal is one hell of a guy.
Not only is he a pretty successful manager, but he has also managed to win over the English media and fans with a series of interesting (to say the least) press conferences.
Gone are the days when Jose Mourinho was the most entertaining thing before a game. Van Gaal takes the biscuit time and time again, and his latest performance included not only admitting that the dressing room was ‘flat’ at times, but also singing his own chant.
Yeah, you read that right. Singing his own chant to journalists, to prove how popular he really is with fans.
In case you missed the presser, here was the performance of a lifetime from the United boss – well actually, his best performance since the end of season awards. Nothing can top that.

That press conference of Van Gaal's was full of entertainment, amusement, delusion and denial. Like all the others.
