Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan was furious after Olivier Giroud opened the scoring for Chelsea in the Red Devils’ FA Cup semi-finals defeat on Sunday.
Phelan, who was sat next to boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant coach Kieron McKenna, was in a fit of rage after the trio watched a replay of the goal on the bench.
57-year-old Phelan appeared to scream ‘that’s f**king w*nk’ immediately after watching back Chelsea’s opener.
The goal can be seen here, 33-year-old Giroud darted past Victor Lindelof with a brilliantly timed run before poking the low cross into the back of the net at the near post.

David de Gea, who later went on to make a costly blunder for Mason Mount’s goal, also didn’t look very comfortable with his half-hearted attempts to keep the effort out.
We can only imagine what Phelan said to the players at half-time after seeing this snippet…
