Van Gaal in trouble at Old Trafford .

Louis van Gaal makes funny Gary Lineker comment

Published 1 Comments

Leicester City winning the Premier League title this season really will stun the world of football and that could lead to something just as incredible: Gary Lineker stripping down on Match of the Day. 

If the Foxes really do go on to claim the prestigious prize, then Lineker has pledged to present the famous football show in his underwear. 

Ah, what a sight that would be for the loyal viewers. Well, it appears that one man in particular is excited by the prospect of Lineker hosting the show in his white fronts.

That man is Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal. The Red Devils chief, who has come under increasing pressure at Old Trafford - his side are currently sitting in fifth place in England's elite division - has admitted that he is 'waiting' for Lineker to strip down. 

In fact, with Leicester currently sitting at the summit of the Premier League table, the United manager has admitted that Claudio Ranieri's side are the favourites to claim the title.

Van Gaal has his say 

Speaking to the Independent, the United manager stated: “They are the favourites because they are five points away from the rest, but the moment that they have to win it is different,” Van Gaal says. “They are more or less in that place now because they want to continue with this lead.

“Is it possible? Why not? Maybe their players can cope, but that you do not know and that is a question that both Leicester and Tottenham must answer.

“It doesn’t say anything about the personalities in these teams. I don’t know them so I cannot judge. But there shall come a moment when they have to win. At the moment, everything is OK and nice. But the manager has spoken about being champion, so now it shall play in their heads. But a lot of players can cope with that.”

“Maybe you remember that I have already said that Leicester can be the champion?” Van Gaal says. “The Godfather, Gary Lineker, was laughing about that, but he has to undress himself if they win it, is that right?

“Well, I am waiting for that.”

Lineker response 

Understandably, Lineker had to respond to Van Gaal's brilliant comments. The former Leicester City striker sent a cheeky message, tweeting: "Whatever turns you on, Louis." 

Another huge clash 

After securing a remarkable win at the Etihad against rivals Manchester City in their last outing, Leicester will be desperate to claim all three points against Arsenal on Sunday.  


It won't be easy, of course - the Gunners won the reverse fixture 5-2 - but Ranieri's side are flying right now and will be confident of upsetting the odds once again.
