Ex-United manager Louis Van Gaal made the trip to Anfield to watch his former team square off against Liverpool this Saturday.
Louis van Gaal, who was sacked by the Red Devils and replaced by Jose Mourinho just days after winning the FA Cup last year, was present for the big fixture at Anfield along with his wife Truus, as he worked for Dutch television.
He was gently welcomed by the United supporters, and the loyal fans happened to sing his name in unison. They chanted “Louis van Gaal’s Red and White Army” post-match.

The current Red Devils’ boss, Jose Mourinho, is apparently still on the lookout for his first victory against the Reds as a United coach, unlike Van Gaal. The Portuguese famously parked the bus on the two occasions, leaving the match goalless.
However, his team has displayed a sensational form this season, and has claimed 20 points in 8 matches, leaving them comfortably in the second spot on the league table.
