Video: Man United boss Louis van Gaal sings Beatles classic at post-match conference

Birthday boy Louis van Gaal was so delighted with his team's victory over Tottenham that he treated the assembled press to a rendition of The Beatles' When I'm Sixty-Four after the game.

The Manchester United manager, who turns 64 today, saw his side claim a narrow victory over Spurs at Old Trafford and was asked whether the three points made a decent birthday present.

His response, as you can see in the video above, was to start crooning the classic '67 Paul McCartney track.

Van Gaal has something of a track record in eccentric press conferences.

Last season he famously handed out a dossier "proving" that his team didn't play too many long balls.

He also referred to Chris Smalling as 'Mike' during United's pre-season tour.
