Erik ten Hag accuses news outlets of 'going behind' Man Utd's back in astonishing press conference

Erik ten Hag accuses news outlets of 'going behind' Man Utd's back in astonishing press conference

The Red Devils boss has responded.

Erik ten Hag has accused news outlets of 'going behind' Manchester United's back during his press conference.

Earlier on Tuesday, it was reported that four journalists had been blocked from attending the Red Devils' manager's press conference after printing a story about members of the squad questioning Erik ten Hag's choice of signings.

Sky Sports chief reporter Kaveh Solhekhol, the Manchester Evening News' chief Manchester United correspondent Samuel Luckhurst, The Mirror's David McDonnell and Rob Dawson of ESPN were all reportedly blocked from joining.

Ten Hag has since addressed the situation and accused the news outlets of going behind the club's back.

"They should have come to us first and not go behind our back printing articles that is not the right thing," the Dutchman said (via Manchester Evening News).

"We have a good relationship, they come to us beforehand, we have a debate about it."

When quizzed on whether the stories could be true, Ten Hag replied: "No, of course there are always in every team players who are not playing who are not as happy, not different as normal, you have to wait for the chance and that can come, but there are no issues."

Asked if the players were behind him, the 53-year-old said: "Oh yes, I am sure. You can see for instance the comeback against Brentford, the Burnley game, the Fulham game.

"Every time the team is there, showed great character, great determination, resilience so we are together. You can see you can’t play such great football as we did recently without unity."
