West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has revealed Louis van Gaal BLANKED him after Manchester United's victory last week. Allardyce wrote in the London Evening Standard: "I always invite the visiting manager into my office for a drink and a chat after a home game.
"It's a valued tradition as far as I and most managers are concerned, a chance to have a private conversation and wind down.
"Which is why I was surprised and, yes, disappointed, that there was no such invitation following our match at Old Trafford last weekend.
"When all was done and dusted after the match, I went to where Sir Alex Ferguson was invariably waiting with a glass of wine - and everything had changed. I think the room is now used for analysis.
"I was told it didn't happen any more, so I said 'fair enough' and left.
"Louis van Gaal has every right to do things his way now, he's the manager of Manchester United, but it struck a discordant note with me all the same."
