Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is either on a massive wind up or genuinely doesn’t know defender Chris Smalling’s name is Chris Smalling!
During the summer, Van Gaal famously called Smalling ‘Mike’ and whilst we all laughed and joked about it we assumed it was a slip of the tongue.
Fast forward a few months and in scenes eerily reminiscent of Homer Simpson and Mr. Burns, it appears Van Gaal just doesn’t know his name after calling him Michael Smalling in his post game presser following United’s 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow.

Astonishing really given that Smalling has been monumental for United this season including tonight where his goal line clearance from Seydou Doumbia kept the scores level before United took the lead and moved to the top of their group!
