Louis van Gaal Confused for TV's Harold Bishop in Australian Newspaper

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterMay 2, 2014

Louis van Gaal is red-hot favourite for the Manchester United job, and expectation is high that he will be confirmed as the boss in due course.

Harold Bishop's chances of landing the Old Trafford gig are less good. 

Firstly, Bishop is a fictional character on Aussie soap Neighbours. Secondly, his managerial career, even in Neighbours, extends only to looking after a coffee shop.

It didn't stop Australian local paper mX mixing the two up on a story, however:

The resemblance is...uncanny.
