“I pivoted and yelled ‘no, no, we have punishments soon’ however the most recent 20 minutes were genuinely extremely hard for me.”
“He [Van Gaal] could see that, and steam was coming out of his ears. At the point when the match was done, and we accumulated close to the touchline, he drew near to me and out of nowhere hit me.”
“With a major level hand, he gave me a blow and said indignantly ‘never do that to me again. I saw him, completely paralyzed. Louis stated, simply continue ahead with it and ensure you get it in the net from the spot.”
“I am happy I figured out how to place the punishment in the corner. At the point when I think back on that episode, it was a bizarre second, however that was Louis for you. In some cases, he can embrace a player – and now and again he can hit you.”
