Australian Newspaper Uses A Picture Of Harold From "Neighbours" In Louis Van Gaal Story

Probably still be better than David Moyes.

Australian commuter newspaper mX has made a rather unfortunate mistake in a story about Manchester United’s new manager.

Hey @mX I'm pretty sure this is Harold from Neighbours and not Louis Van Gaal

The free paper, which is circulated in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney, published a story on Friday about Louis Van Gaal being set to replace David Moyes at Old Trafford.

However, instead of using a picture of the current Holland manager, the paper used an image of Ian Smith, the Australian actor who plays Harold Bishop in the popular soap Neighbours.

Manchester United fans may not be that dismayed at the bizarre appointment.

Harold would probably still do a better job than Moyes.
