Manchester United 'ban' four outlets from Erik ten Hag's press conference today
| Last updated
Manchester United have reportedly banned four outlets from Erik ten Hag's press conference today.
It is thought that the players had become disillusioned with the manager's tactics and intense training sessions.
Meanwhile, separate reports state that players have questioned four of Erik ten Hag's signings.
Four outlets have now allegedly been banned from entering Ten Hag's press conference over such stories.
That's according to The Manchester Evening News, who state that "a United spokesperson claims the ban has been imposed as the club was not approached for comment on a multiply-sourced story that Ten Hag is losing the confidence of some players over his tactics and 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 have all reportedly been blocked from joining Ten Hag’s press conference this afternoon.
United confirmed the club had "taken action against several news organisations not for publishing stories we don’t like, but for doing so without contacting us first to give us the opportunity to comment, challenge or contextualise".
"We believe this is an important principle to defend and we hope it can lead to a re-set in the way we work together," the club wrote.
SPORTbible have contacted both Manchester United and Andrew Ward for comment.
