LVG did not seem best pleased with Memphis after United dropped points today

LOUIS VAN GAAL was not a happy man after seeing his side concede a late equaliser against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today.

And in his post-match interview with Sky Sports, the Man United manager appeared to make a none-too-subtle reference to 87th-minute substitute Memphis Depay’s unwitting role in the Chelsea goal.

Depay had the ball at Chelsea’s end of the field in the dying moments and instead of trying to keep hold of it or playing a simple pass, he hit it straight out of play, thereby giving the hosts a chance to launch an attack and ultimately make it 1-1.

Seemingly alluding to Depay, Van Gaal said: “You have to keep the ball and be composed, when you are defending also, and not be kicking the ball away.”

The 21-year-old Dutch winger has been inconsistent since joining the club in the summer, and looked overly anxious to impress during his brief stint on the field this afternoon.

Check out Van Gaal’s full interview above.
