Louis van Gaal was just a teenager when The Beatles released “When I’m 64″ – and now he’s living it.
Following Man United’s exciting 1-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur in their Premier League season opener, manager Louis van Gaal had some extra spring in his step and paid tribute to The Beatles.
Van Gaal, who turned 64 today, got to celebrate his big day in style as Man United overcame a gritty Tottenham defense to get a crucial 3 point swing to open the 2015-16 season.
Asked how he felt about getting the points as a present for his 64th birthday win, the Old Trafford boss announced “I’m 64″ and began singing one of the verses to the famous song by The Beatles “When I’m 64.”
“When you hear what they (The Beatles) are singing, all of my wishes are fulfilled,” van Gaal jokingly said before smiling and ending the conference.
A major gaffe by Spurs defender Kyle Walker resulted in an own-goal at the 22′ mark and there was no scoring at all afterwards as the Man United midfield utilized a massive passing offensive to keep the ball away from Spurs scoring ace Harry Kane.
