Romero’s hair pull on Cucurella sees the Dutchman’s bizarre rant go viral

Louis van Gaal’s two years as Manchester United manager involved wild press conferences.

One in 2016 involved him in a very bizarre hair-pulling rant, following an incident on Marouane Fellaini against Leicester.

And in the fiery 2-2 stalemate between Chelsea and Tottenham on Sunday, Spurs’ Cristian Romero resorted to the dark art of hair-pulling against Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella.

A heated contest saw spats between every dugout on the touchline during the game, questionable refereeing decisions and heavy flying challenges, as Tottenham snatched a draw from the death.

Chelsea dominated the first half and led at half-time through Kalidou Koulibaly’s volley, but Spurs controversially leveled the game through Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg following a foul on Kai Havertz who didn’t was not given.

Reece James restored Chelsea’s lead after 77 minutes, but then came the injury-time equalizer and, more importantly, the hair-pulling incident between Romero and Cucurella.

With Ivan Perisic standing over a corner at the death, Cristian Romero was caught hauling Cucurella by his abundance of hair, moments before Harry Kane made it 2-2.

As a result, many believe Tottenham’s equalizer shouldn’t have stood and Romero should have been sent off for violent conduct.

Ask Van Gaal and he’d probably echo the same thoughts. However, he and Fellaini weren’t so lucky in 2016, when United drew 1-1 with Leicester City, which he made clear with one of the most bizarre post-match interviews ever. we have ever seen.

The clip of Van Gaal’s bizarre interview, in which he discusses ‘sexual masochisms’ and hair-pulling in detail, went viral after Romero’s hair-pulling on Cucurella. And we can understand why – it’s absolutely brilliant.

WATCH: Van Gaal’s bizarre hair-pulling rant

He is completely mad. One of the greatest characters the Premier League will ever see, that’s for sure.

Discussing the incident which saw Robert Huth pull Fellaini’s hair, Van Gaal explained to the interviewer that he would “react too” if his hair was pulled, and continued to reach behind the camera and pull on his hair.

But it gets even better. The Dutchman then expands on his theory that it’s wrong to see hair pulling hair in the game, saying “it’s not in the books” before a brief pause. He then goes on to say that pulling your hair out is allowed “only in sexual masochism, so it’s allowed.”

Thanks for that Louis. A quite reasonable and relevant parallel to make.

The hair-pulling actually happened because Fellaini was caught elbowing Huth earlier in the game, but was not punished for his actions, just like Romero was not punished. for hair pulling.

Van Gaal’s time at United has been mixed. His first season saw him take them back to the top four and his second ended with the Red Devils lifting the FA Cup, but he was sacked in 2016 as they failed to finish in the FA Cup positions. Champions League and have been regularly criticized for their style of play.

Between spells of seriously boring football, however, the Dutch manager has earned a character reputation for his persona on the touchline and in the media, giving us a number of hilarious moments during his two years in charge. .

Referee Anthony Taylor has been criticized for his decision-making in Chelsea’s draw with Tottenham, with him and VAR failing to detect key incidents.

Maybe Romero should keep his hair pulled for the bedroom next time, to be on the safe side.
