What he said:
“He did a stupid reaction after the goal.You can be excited but you don’t have to pull your shirt off because then you have a yellow card. It is not so smart.”
Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal rebukes fellow Dutchman Robin Van Persie for taking off his jersey while celebrating his 94th minute equaliser against Chelsea. It was the first time since 9 December 2012 that United scored in injury time to either draw or snatch a victory.
Van Persie was booked by referee Phil Dowd for the infringement.
What he really meant:
“Couldn’t he have waited till the game was over to celebrate? He held back till the 94th minute, didn’t he?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“How about tiny-necked shirts for the players? That way, they’ll think twice about tearing them off especially when they’ll look like headless chickens with the tees draped around their heads…”
