Louis van Gaal's 'twitchy ass' time

Sir Alex Ferguson famously coined the phrases ‘squeaky bum time’ when gearing up for big games - but Louis van Gaal has come up trumps with his version 'twitchy ass.'

The Dutchman gave his take on the phrase during a press conference ahead of Manchester United's FA Cup fourth round tie at Cambridge, claiming his team’s uncertain performances have left him ‘twitching his ass’ on the bench.

He said Manchester United cannot play 4-4-2 because it gives him "a twitchy ass"...“when you analyse the game then we have twitched our ass on the bench.

“I said to my players I was squeezing my ass, but it was the wrong expression.

“I have twitched my ass on the bench because we were out of balance.”
