Van Gaal's full Manchester United awards speech; Carragher reacts

Louis van Gaal - suited and booted

Manchester United's boss Louis van Gaal's end of season speech was so epic even former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher was declaring his love for him.

Louis van Gaal stole the show at Manchester United's annual awards do, with a memorable speech.

He talked passionately about his belief the Red Devils can win the title next season, and the up's and down's of the 2014/15 campaign.

The Dutchman was highly animated, with a particular highlight of his speech timed at 3:50 in the video above, when he shouts 'Yes', describing his reaction to captain Wayne Rooney's talk with the rest of the United players after their FA Cup loss to Arsenal.

United went on a winning run, which led to them securing a top four place, and Van Gaal added that their narrow loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge told him they are almost at the same level as the Blues.

Videos and clips of Van Gaal's speech went viral last night, with the manager's passion even turning former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher into a big fan.

We somehow doubt the dour David Moyes, sacked a year ago, would have been able to generate the same response...
