Louis van Gaal fell down "perfectly" when he comically collapsed to the floor to simulate a dive, according to Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink.

Manchester United boss Van Gaal theatrically simulated a dive during his side's 3-2 win over Arsenal and the technique he used impressed his compatriot.

"You could see that he has been educated also as a physical teacher as then you have practice in judo as well as he fell down perfectly," said Hiddink.

The Chelsea interim-manager went on: "It was not hard, very fluently he went down."

Hiddink revealed that he "also had some judo so I'm able to do so as well", however he said while he was capable of the "execution" he wouldn't actually choose to copy Van Gaal's comic moves.
