The much anticipated start to the Louis van Gaal era as manager of Manchester United ended in an anticlimax after the Red Devils succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea City.
After so much hype surrounding the Dutchman’s arrival, the defeat allied by a very poor performance has certainly drawn a lot of negative reaction as well as mockery from rival fans on social media.
Here is a look at the best/funniest tweets following United’s torrid performance on the opening day.
