A small selection of the best jokes after Trevor Sinclair started a rumour that Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal had been sacked when, in fact, he hadn’t.
Sinclair appeared to suggest van Gaal had been fired via a series of messages posted on his Twitter account that were later claimed to have been sent by someone else as part of a Christmas Party prank.
These are the best jokes as Trevor Sinclair announces Louis van Gaal has been sacked:
