During our loss at Old Trafford on Sunday, Louis van Gaal behaved bizarrely by throwing himself to the floor in front of the fourth official, Mike Dean.

The Red Devils’ manager explained after the match that he’d simply let his emotions get the better of him and apologised. Although it did appear at the time that he was imitating one of our players falling to the floor and getting a free-kick.

When quizzed about his rival’s actions, Wenger kept his mouth shut, claiming that if he said anything he’d be accused of being a sore loser, which he is.

“You will have to ask him that question (if managers should be allowed to act like that),” Wenger said.

“I’m not one to comment on that because after you will say I’m a sore loser and I am.”

One accusation from Arsenal fans directed at the boss that I never understand is that he doesn’t mind losing or that he just doesn’t care. He does, very much so. Although he’s in charge and has pretty much all the say on what happens with the team, he doesn’t like to lose. He takes it harder than any of us.
