Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United side took some time to get going in their 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.
The Dutchman admitted he was impressed with the way Harry Redknapp’s side played, although any praise for the Premier League strugglers was completely overshadowed by Van Gaal’s pronunciation of the west London outfit.
In his post match interview with Sky Sports, Van Gaal referred to the Hoops as ‘Queens Park RAISINS’, sending fans on Twitter absolutely wild.
It didn’t take long for the Old Trafford boss’ gaffe to go viral, with supporters of all clubs taking the opportunity to express their delight with QPR’s new found nickname.
Redknapp will be scratching his head at how he can improve his side’s ‘currant’ form between now and the end of the season, because if things don’t change soon they’ll be preparing for life back in the Championship…

LVG's "Queens Park Raisins" is booming on social media, and what does @QPRFC do to capitalize on it? Nothing. Opportunity to engage wasted.
