Louis van Gaal full of praise for Antrim's Paddy McNair, imitates THAT header

The 19-year-old had a promising debut against West Ham at the weekend.

LOUIS VAN GAAL raised a few eyebrows by handing 19-year-old Paddy McNair his first start for Manchester United against West Ham at the weekend.

Yet the Northern Irish youngster rewarded his coach’s faith in him as he delivered an impressive performance at the heart of the defence.

In one particularly memorable moment, McNair showed good agility to steer a dangerous cross away from goal with his head, and Van Gaal was so impressed that he re-lived the moment in a post-match interview.
