Watch: Manchester United’s Louis Van Gaal takes a dive on the sideline

Sunday February 28th, 2016

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal employed interesting tactic to protest what he thought was Arsenal players diving during their match on Sunday, diving in front of an official on the sideline.

Vaan Gaal used the technique after apparently losing an argument with the fourth official next to the Manchester United bench. Right before Arsenal was about to send a free kick into the box, Vaan Gaal decided to show the official exactly how the opposing players were diving.

Man United would eventually win the match 3–2, holding onto the one goal led for the last 21 minutes of the game.
