Louis van Gaal asks for personal hearing with FA

Louis van Gaal doesn’t agree with anyone nowadays.

After producing an entire dossier to disprove Sam Allardyce’s “Long Ball United” comments, the Dutchman has asked for a personal hearing with the FA to discuss the recent charges levied against him.

In a series of tweets, the FA confirmed that a face-to-face meeting would be scheduled with the Manchester United manager.

The charges stem from van Gaal’s post-match comments following his side’s 0-0 FA Cup draw against League Two side Cambridge United. Speaking to BBC’s Match of the Day, van Gaal said “Every aspect of a match is against us – the pitch, the referee.” He referenced the officiating again later in the interview, stating “You have seen the referee. It’s always the same.”

The FA has made it clear that they will not stand for criticizing officials, as managers across the Premier League have been fined for speaking out this season.

If van Gaal escapes without punishment, what will Jose Mourinho think?
