Before the speeches start, a charity auction takes place. Clearly nobody but Ryan Giggs has the gall to bid against the boss, and for good reason.

After a delicate starter of the Please Don't Leave Us David De Gea Awards Ceremony the manager takes centre stage for the main event and calls for focus. Either that, or he's calling everyone's attention to the men's room. it honestly could be either.

After briefly discussing his response to Wayne Rooney's rousing call for a second-place finish, Van Gaal recalls the time that he and Ryan Giggs met a couple of sweet honeys on a memorable away day.
