It's been something of an interesting day for Louis Van Gaal. The Times have published extracts from a new biography of the Man Utd boss which paints him in quite an unfavourable light and there have been suggestions from his old club Bayern Munich that he wasn't exactly the most liked man in Bavaria.
Hugo Borst's book, 'O, Louis: In Search Of Louis van Gaal', has levelled some rather unsavoury criticism at Van Gaal about how he treats his wife when drunk as well as revealing an embarrassing moment about Van Gaal losing his dentures during a half-time tirade during his time at AZ Alkmaar.
The quotes which Karl-Heinz Rummenigge gave to German magazine Spiegel, are sure to only add insult to injury on a less than stellar day for the Man Utd boss.
Van Gaal having a bad press day. Shouted so loud his dentures flew out. Tried to "Vangaalise" Bayern. Allegedly x 2. The bear is poked.

The Bayern Munich CEO has said that Van Gaal's time in charge of the German club was marred by an ego which was at odds with the Bayern way of doing things.
As soon as he presented his autobiography in a snobby restaurant, I knew hard times were ahead. Louis van Gaal was not always easy-care. He wanted to ‘Vangaalise’ our club. He has a huge ego.
Rummenigge went on to say that although Van Gaal was a 'good and successful coach', current boss Pep Guardiola is more in keeping with what Bayern look for in their managers.
Pep’s a genius. He’s made Bayern a bit more professional. He’s got high expectations, but he also respects the culture of this club. He has many ideas, sometimes unusual ones, but never crazy.
