'ARROGANT' LVG RULING BY FEAR; DOUBLE TROUBLE FOR VAN GAAL; United boss under fire from Swansea director AND rival manager Koeman; VAN GAAL SO 'ARROGANT'.

Byline: EXCLUSIVE BY MIKE WALTERS

LOUIS VAN GAAL was branded an "arrogant b*****d" by a gloating Swansea director at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

And Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has stoked his own feud with the Manchester United boss by claiming he puts so much pressure on his own team they play scared.

Wallpaper tycoon John van Zweden rubbed Van Gaal's nose in the Swans' 2-1 win over United on Twitter by posting a picture of himself indicating the score with his fingers. And Van Zweden added the message: "Dear Louis. Sleep well mate 6 points and The double. @SwansOfficial @ManUtd 2-1 again!!! #easy".

Swansea beat United at Old Trafford on the first day of the season and completed their first home-and-away double over them at the weekend.

The United manager's pre-match claim that his side were the best in the Premier League after one defeat in 19 games prompted Van Zweden to respond: "Yes, and I find him an arrogant b*****d."

A Dutch TV crew followed Van Zweden to the Liberty for Swansea's famous win ahead of a documentary which is due to be screened in Holland on Thursday.

Van Zweden's feud with his fellow Dutchman was stoked on the opening day of the season. He claims Van Gaal snubbed the Swansea delegation at lunch in the boardroom before Van Zweden called over to him: "Hey, Louis, I'm going to take three points back to the Hague, you silly s*d."

Van Zweden, 52, claimed Van Gaal turned round and allegedly replied: "'I'll see you after the match and we'll see if you still have the gift of the gab then'. I didn't see him after the game."
