With eight goals in the last two games, Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United are finally starting to provide some entertainment at Old Trafford.

So is the Dutchman himself.

In a moment that drew laughter around the iconic stadium, Van Gaal fell to the ground on purpose while remonstrating with fourth official Mike Dean in the technical area during the second half of United’s 3-2 win over Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday. Lying on the ground and still holding his clipboard in his left hand, Van Gaal stared at Dean in mock horror.

Van Gaal appeared to be unhappy at Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez falling easily to earn a foul, moments earlier.

Van Gaal has a history for touchline antics. In the 1995 Champions League final when in charge of Ajax against AC Milan, he performed a karate kick on the touchline to highlight the referee’s failure to award a foul for a high tackle on Jari Litmanen.
