We see you Louis, twitchin' that ass

Apparently, playing four at the back makes Louis van Gaal ... uncomfortable. At the back.

Here's Manchester United's manager explaining why he is reluctant to play 4-4-2:

I know all the stats. I read the stats. I know that we have won more with 4-4-2 in a diamond. But when you analyse the game, then we have twitched our ass on the bench.

I said to my players I was squeezing my ass, but it was the wrong expression. I have twitched my ass on the bench because we were out of balance. All the matches when we play 4-4-2, like against West Ham United, it was always twitching your ass. I don't like that.

We have won nine or 10 in a row, then we lose one match and then the discussion about the system is coming. It is ridiculous. Now I have answered your question in a very good way.

Obviously the analogy is getting all the attention, but look at that closing line. "Now I have answered your question in a very good way." That's you told.
