Louis van Gaal, just look what you’ve done.

Manchester United’s shocking 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday caused Sir Alex Ferguson to throw down his sausage sandwich in disgust.

And that wasn’t even the worst reaction. Not even close.

A video of one young boy in tears during the game has gone viral, amassing nearly 100,000 views on Facebook.

We honestly wouldn’t mind if you just clicked off now. The video is that sad.

It’s all your fault, Van Gaal.

Ferguson was responsible for attracting so many young Manchester United fans during his 27-year reign in charge.

Everyone enjoyed watching his team’s attacking play style which, coupled with the superstars he signed including Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo, made United the most appealing club in England.

But the present team bears no resemblance whatsoever to United teams of old. They’re dull, aimless and the only noises their fans make are wailing ones, like the boy in the video.

Downward spiral

The Red Devils conceded three goals in six minutes against Tottenham in a second-half capitulation. Currently four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, they are on course to miss out on Champions League football for the second time in three seasons.

Ferguson, who brought 13 Premier League titles to Old Trafford, watched the defeat to Spurs from Augusta National, where he watching Danny Willett win the Masters.

According to an onlooker, he reacted with utter disgust at watching his old team lose a ninth league game.

“He was looking on his phone when he suddenly threw his sausage down on to his plate in anger,” the witness said, per The Sun. “He’d obviously seen the United result.”

If that’s not enough to warrant Van Gaal’s departure, who knows what is.

The Dutchman will surely be let go by United’s hierarchy at the end of the season after failing to turn the Red Devils into an exciting, title-contending team.

With Jose Mourinho available since December, it’s a surprise the club haven’t moved earlier to appoint the former Chelsea boss.

The latest reports out of Old Trafford are that the players have turned on Van Gaal, who reportedly hit out at teenage striker Marcus Rashford at half-time in Sunday’s loss.

And if the 64-year-old continues to make fans cry, he may as well start packing his bags now.
