Louis van Gaal has left reporters and cameramen with plenty of interesting lines and actions to remember him by.

Today's Premier League post-match interview with Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves following the 1-1 draw against league leaders Leicester City was no different.

Asked about an incident involving his midfielder Marouane Fellaini who appeared to elbow Leicester's Robert Huth after his hair was pulled, Manchester United's manager was gently demonstrative. 

"When you see what Huth is doing to Fellaini, that's a penalty,"

"'Shall I grab you by your hair? What is your reaction when I grab your hair? Your hair is shorter than Fellaini but when I do that, what are you doing then?' It's a reaction."


He wasn't finished there as he made an unexpected comparison.

"Every human being who is grabbed by the hair, only with sex masochism, then it is allowed but not in other situations. They did it. They did it several times I think. Huth was the guy who grabbed the hair of Fellaini. I think the reaction of Fellaini is like a human being. He is always like that."
