Former Man United star trolls Louis van Gaal over plane protest
Alan Tonge speculates over the message to be displayed on the banner to flown over Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon
Alan Tonge has managed to see the funny side of a planned protest against Louis van Gaal by some Manchester United supporters on Saturday.
Some Red Devils fans have seemingly organised a plane to fly over Old Trafford during Saturday’s clash against Norwich City in a bid to force a change at United.

The Red Devils have failed to win their last two Premier League games following a 2-1 defeat by Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium on Saturday evening, whilst United were eliminated from the Champions League last week.
Unsurprisingly, Van Gaal has been subjected to the brunt of the criticism after a series of unexciting performances from his Red Devils players in the Premier League and in Europe.
While plans for a plane to fly over Old Trafford displaying presumably an anti-Van Gaal message received a mixed reception from United supporters, Tonge could at least see the funny side of the protest.
I believe there's an Irish pilot flying the LVG OUT plane banner on Saturday. He's called Phil O' Sophy.
