Video: Louis Van Gaal theatrically throws himself to ground in protest to fourth official

Diving will probably always be a fact of life in professional soccer, but sometimes it can be rather entertaining. Case in point, Louis Van Gaal. It appeared that Manchester United’s coach was unhappy with the way Arsenal players were going down looking for fouls. The Dutch coach confronted the fourth official to make his protest. After a few seconds of arguing, Van Gaal threw himself to the ground as dramatically as possible.

The crowd at Old Trafford seems to have loved it, and even if Louis Van Gaal has been in the hot seat, making a spectacle in the technical area will surely put a smiles on the Manchester United fan’s faces.  Even more so if they can hold on to beat Arsenal.
