VIDEO: Dutch TV show parodies Louis van Gaal in English

New, comments

A Dutch TV show has made a comedy sketch featuring our new manager, which is mildly amusing.

Louis van Gaal has something of a reputation in his native land. It's preceded him to a certain extent here, but we're still unsure of him, and were English TV to attempt a comedy sketch poking fun at him, they'd probably come out with something terrible and faintly xenophobic. Well, let's be honest, English TV would probably do that regardless of how much they knew about him.

Still, on the continent, they know what makes their man tick, so we thought we'd share this clip of Van Gaal taking English lessons from Dutch TV.

This would seem to go in with Van Gaal being unafraid to already criticise the way the club is run. He's an outspoken man, and one wonders how terrified little Eddy is about going about his business with Van Gaal ready to tear a strip out of him.

Yes, it's a slow news day. But it amused us.
