West Ham boss Allardyce unimpressed LvG BLANKED him after Man Utd win

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."
