Erik Ten Hag Sent A Damning Email To Entire Manchester United Squad With His Demands

Erik Ten Hag Sent A Damning Email To Entire Manchester United Squad With His Demands

Ten Hag knows what he wants.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has issued a fresh warning to his players in a ruthless email.

The Red Devils finished sixth in the Premier League this season and were blighted by rumours of dressing room cliques and training ground bust-ups.

It's believed this information came from a leaker and according to the Sun, ten Hag plans on instilling discipline at Carrington.

Ten Hag has warned United's stars that there is no room for ego in his team as they look to rebuild.


A source explained: "The new gaffer sent the first-team players an email, telling them that football is a team game and no individual is more important than any other.

"His emphasis is all on the team — despite United possessing world class stars. He wants the players to train at a higher intensity so that each session is like a game.

"The players have been told that their fitness levels will be the best they have ever been and that if they stick with him and back him, they will be fine. If not, they will be out the door.

"They will be drilled and drilled until they get it right. And if they can’t he’ll replace them with some of the promising youngsters."


United finished third and second in their previous two seasons under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but it all collapsed after a positive summer.

The Red Devils signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in hopes of challenging for the title.

Instead, Solskjaer was sacked in November after a dismal run of results and Ralf Rangnick was hired on an interim basis.

Rangnick was expected to move into a consultancy role in the summer after United appointed a new manager.

His time in charge was turbulent and he took the Austria national team job before confirming he'd be leaving United altogether.

It's expected to be a big summer at United and they've already confirmed the departure of five first-team players.

Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Edinson Cavani have all moved on after the expiry of their contracts.

United are currently working on a deal for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who ten Hag worked with at Ajax.


According to the Athletic, sources close to de Jong claim a move to Old Trafford 'appeals' to him.

The Netherlands international has been their main focus over the last few weeks and it could come at a cost.

Benfica forward Darwin Nunez was said to be top of ten Hag's wishlist but he's inching closer to a move to Liverpool.
