Louis van Gaal does his best Irish accent for a Manchester United fan

Published Add your comment

Louis van Gaal has become a pretty popular figure with Manchester United fans, well, at least for his antics off the field. 

The Dutch boss' press conferences have become a regular source of comedy and whenever he is in front of a camera he rarely disappoints. 

Well, the Red Devils manager was at it again following his team's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Goals from Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata gave United all three points and after the game Van Gaal appeared to be in a buoyant mood while signing autographs for fans.

He was approached by an Irish women called Catherine Doyle, who asked him to show his support for Portlaoise GAA Club by saying 'come on the Town'.

After some bemused looks, the former Holland boss finally obliged, and we have to say, his accent was not too shabby. (see the video below)


Van Gaal has every right to be happy. While his United side are not producing the free-flowing style of football that fans became used to under Sir Alex Ferguson, they are once again becoming a force.

The Red Devils have not conceded a goal in four Premier League matches and find themselves fourth in the table, two points behind Manchester City and Arsenal.

17 goals may be a poor return for a team with such attacking quality, but if they continue to pick up results then a 21st league success may not be out of their reach.

The Old Trafford club hit a rich run of form during the festive period last season and if they can repeat that feat this year then they will be well within the mix.
