Louis van Gaal could be excused for feeling happy after seeing his Manchester United side record an opening day win over Tottenham on his birthday.

However few expected the Dutchman was so cock-a-hoop that he would break into song in the post-match press conference.

But that's exactly what the unpredictably Manchester United manager did.

Informing the assembled media of his age - Van Gaal said: "Sixty-four." He continued: "The Beatles have a song. You know that? Sixty-four. When I'm 64. When you hear what they are singing, all my wishes are fulfilled."

Van Gaal's side were somewhat fortunate to beat Spurs on Saturday lunchtime, with a disjointed display resulting in three points thanks to Kyle Walker's own goal.


Manchester United's next match is against Aston Villa.
