With the Oscars set to take place, Louis van Gaal staked his own claim for a gong with a brilliantly theatrical tumble following a touchline row with fourth official Mike Dean.
In recent weeks, the Dutchman has joked about getting sacked, poked himself with a pencil, told his players to be more “horny” and invoked Murphy’s law as an excuse – but this latest comedy moment might just top the lot.
