Arsene Wenger comments on Louis van Gaal’s touchline antics after Man United v Arsenal

Arsene Wenger refuses to be drawn on Louis van Gaal's touchline antics against Arsenal on Sunday

Arsene Wenger refused to be drawn on Louis van Gaal’s touchline antics after Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Manchester United manager theatrically threw himself to the floor in front of fourth official Mike Dean as protested about a decision made by the referee during the game.

Arsenal boss Wenger was asked about the incident in his post-match news conference at Old Trafford, but the Frenchman preferred to remain quiet, rather than appear a “sore loser”.

Asked what he made of the incident at his post-match news conference, the Arsenal manager replied: “Nothing.

“You will have to ask him that question. I’m not one to comment on that because after you will say I’m a sore loser and I am.”

Two goals from teenager Marcus Rashford and another from Ander Herrera handed the Red Devils victory over the Gunners at Old Trafford.
