Even in the fleeting moments when things go right for Manchester United this season, they still hold nuggets of embarrassment for Louis van Gaal. While attempting to take a sip of water during Man United’s 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup, Van Gaal forgot that he also had a pencil in his hand and nearly stabbed himself in the eye with it.
Momentarily stunned by the sneaky self-attack, Van Gaal rubbed his face to make sure he didn’t mark himself up. Naturally, the whole incident was caught on camera and broadcast to everyone watching the match at home.
I know Man United have been tough to watch this season, but this isn’t the answer, Louis. You’re going to need both your eyes to find the door on your way out.
