Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal hit the deck during an argument with fourth official Mike Dean during his side’s 3-2 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal was incensed by Alexis Sanchez taking a tumble in the United box and quite literally demonstrated his point with a slapstick pratfall over on the touchline…

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Dutchman later revealed that he apologised to referee Craig Pawson after the final whistle.

That was too emotional because at that time you are little bit too emotional because it is not good for the referee, the linesman, the fourth referee.

I was emotional. It happens not too much. Normally I am sitting on my bench and I have a lot of criticism because I am sitting on my bench. I have apologised to the referee and the linesman.

I have to control my emotions.

What a man. Not a patch on his high kick in the 1995 Champions League Final though…
