Watch: Proof That Louis Van Gaal Completely Lost The Plot With This Theatrical Touchline Dive

Watch: Proof That Louis Van Gaal Completely Lost The Plot With This Theatrical Touchline Dive

We don't know what to make of this. Louis van Gaal is probably feeling a lot more secure in his position as Manchester United manager after his team's 3-2 win over arch-rivals Arsenal, especially as 18-year-old Marcus Rashford bagged a brace on his Premier League debut.

Van Gaal's gamble in starting the youngster during the week paid off handsomely in the Europa League and it proved just as shrewd this afternoon as United dented Arsenal's title challenge. But while van Gaal will rightly get plenty of credit for masterminding a crucial victory, his touchline behaviour got a lot of people talking.

While remonstrating with the fourth official about a perceived dive, the Dutchman gave his own interpretation of the incident.

It is hard to know what is more ridiculous - the dive or that huge binder.

The win moves United to within three points of Man City in the last Champions League spot but Manuel Pellegrini's men also have a game in hand so there is plenty still to do for the Red Devils.
