Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal clearly hasn't taken too kindly to the criticism that has been directed at club captain Wayne Rooney this season, losing his cool and comically referring to one reporter as "fat man".
Video footage has emerged from the end of the post-match conference following United's 3-3 draw with Newcastle - a game in which Rooney was outstanding - showing Van Gaal getting rather narked with the media questions.

"We don't speak any more about Wayne Rooney. You have criticised him. I don't. You," he said to one journalist in the room.
The United manager got up and walked away, but just as he was about to exit the fiery Dutchman turned around and pointed to someone else. "You too, fat man, there," he said.

As laughter broke out, the reply from off camera came: "Thank you". More chuckling followed, while another comment of "That's brilliant", was audible as everyone else got up to leave.
During the game Rooney had scored twice and assisted United's other with a sublime reverse pass to Jesse Lingard. His goals were his 240th and 241st in United colours and England's all-time top scorer is now just eight behind Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time club record.
