Man United boss mocks Tottenham following latest defeat

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has taken a swipe at Tottenham Hotspur following their 3-0 defeat at White Hart Lane, Skysports reports.

Both sides were unable to find the back of the net until the 70th minute when Dele Alli found the opener before Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela made it 3-0 in the space of six minutes.

The result means Tottenham are still only seven points behind league leaders Leicester City with only five games left to play.

United now see their one point gap behind fourth place side Manchester City widen to four points as they face another campaign without Champions League football.

Van Gaal has come out to speak about how he rejected the managerial role at Spurs because he believes United are still the bigger club.

“I like also to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. Daniel Levy knows that. But the challenge was bigger at Manchester United and shall always be bigger,” he said.

“I am sorry for Tottenham but Manchester United will always be the bigger club. I think it is a little bit pathetic that you ask that because they have won 3-0. It is easy to ask that but it is okay, you enjoy yourself.”

Tottenham will now take on Stoke City in their next round of league fixtures, while United face West Ham United in the FA Cup quarter-final before hosting Aston Villa at the weekend.
