Man Utd Boss Erik Ten Hag Forced To Step In After Three Players Ignore Coach In Training (Details below)



Erik ten Hag’s first training session as Man Utd boss.

Erik ten Hag berated his Manchester United players following a succession of mistakes by trio Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Dalot and Marcus Rashford. The Dutchman is keen to raise standards during the first few weeks of pre-season after inheriting an underperforming squad.

United’s players returned to the club’s Carrington training base at the start of last week and have been put through their paces by Ten Hag and his coaching staff. Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant Steve McClaren is back at United, alongside Ten Hag lieutenant Mitchell van der Gaag.

In a video posted to the Red Devils’ social channels, McClaren and Van der Gaag can be heard calling out errors made by individuals. Ten Hag then steps in to give his players a dressing down.

The first star to make a mistake is Fernandes, who passes to Anthony Elanga’s left side. The move prompts McClaren to shout: “On the right foot Bruno! On the right foot!”

But the message clearly did not register as right-back Dalot then made the same error, passing to Scott McTominay’s left side instead of his right. “On the right!” can be heard in the background.

Rashford, who will hope for a fresh start under Ten Hag, is the third player to repeat the mistake as he passes to the wrong side of Anthony Elanga. A loud groan can be heard before a coach exclaims: “To the right, Marcus!”

It is at this point that Ten Hag gets involved, saying loudly: “Hey, we are making too many mistakes!”

The 52-year-old former Ajax coach has had a rocky start at Old Trafford. Having prematurely torn up his contract with the Eredivisie side to start work at United, Ten Hag might have hoped for more signings as mid-July approaches.
