‘Oooooh Malacia!’ – Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal gives hilarious reaction to Red Devils star Tyrell Malacia’s goal in training

Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal couldn’t contain his excitement when Tyrell Malacia scored a worldie in training. The Dutch national team played their final two Nations League games last week, beating both Poland and Belgium to finish top of their group by six points. Van Gaal’s side have had a pleasing international breakGetty And he was particularly happy with Malacia, as shown by a clip of their training sessionGetty Manchester United‘s new left-back Tyrell Malacia featured in the country’s second fixture, coming on for the second-half. But despite Van Gaal deciding to put him at centre-back for the tie, the Dutch boss had been most impressed with the 23-year-old’s attacking threat in training last week. And he was that wowed by one of his goals he scored, that he let out a hilarious reaction that fans are going mad for on social media. In a video clip of the Netherlands’ training posted on Twitter, Malacia is seen unmarked just outside of the box. And instead of passing the ball, Man United’s new £13million recruit went for goal, curled a beautifully-struck outside of the boot shot into the bottom right hand corner with his left foot. Malacia didn’t react to his wonder-strike, running back to his own half cool as a cucumber.
