Erik ten Hag has already been told his Man Utd fate after club leaks
| Last updated
Erik ten Hag has already been warned about his fate at Manchester United amid reports that he has lost the dressing room.
On Monday, it emerged that the Red Devils boss had divided the squad, with 50 per cent of the players unhappy with the style of play and their intense training sessions.
The Old Trafford club suffered their 10th consecutive defeat to Newcastle on the weekend and are staring down the barrel of a group stage exit from the Champions League following a 3-3 draw with Galatasaray.
And the two results have left several first-team stars questioning Ten Hag's methods as manager, according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Solhekol said: "My information is that some of the players are confused with what is happening. He has lost elements of the dressing room. One source tells me that he's lost about 50 per cent of the dressing room.
"Quite a few players are unhappy with the style of play, they also feel that they're training too hard and that they're running too much during training. I was told that the players don't know what they're running for."
He added: "Also, some senior players have spoken to Erik ten Hag about where they feel the club is going wrong. They've spoken to him about their other experiences of playing for big clubs, and they feel that the manager should be a little bit more touchy-feely.
"They feel his man-management could be a little bit better, but Erik ten Hag is the boss and he's the one who calls the shots. He is not for turning. He is going to do things his way. I've also been told that a few of the players believe that he is too set in his ways and he's too robotic."
However, Ten Hag only has to look back at how previous managers Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Ralf Rangnick all left the club to realise his own fate.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville also reckons that Ten Hag could follow in their footsteps, believing that history is repeating itself at Old Trafford.
The Sky Sports pundit tweeted: "Here we go. Groundhog Day."
