Scott McTominay aims 'toxic' dig at former Man Utd managers as dressing room view of Erik ten Hag revealed

Scott McTominay aims 'toxic' dig at former Man Utd managers as dressing room view of Erik ten Hag revealed

He has made himself clear.

Scott McTominay has revealed what the Manchester United dressing room make of under-pressure manager Erik ten Hag.

On Saturday United crumbled to a dismal defeat, losing 3-0 against Bournemouth to pile the pressure on Ten Hag.

The shambolic defensive display was compounded by a limp attacking output as the club registered just three shots on target.

As the referee blew the final whistle the Old Trafford faithful loudly booed, with the Premier League giants having now fallen to their seventh league defeat of the season.

United must now turn their attention to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Ten Hag's men must win against the group leaders to have a chance of securing European football at the turn of the year, though whether that is in the Champions League or Europa League is dependent on the outcome of results elsewhere.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of United's crucial Champions League encounter against Bayern, McTominay said: "The players feel that responsibility [to support the manager].

"I feel we have big characters in the dressing room. Maybe with some of the other managers in the past [the atmosphere in the dressing room] has been toxic at times, but that is not the case now.

"The boys are fully behind the manager, that's the be all and end all.

"We just want to do well for the football club and it is as simple as that."

McTominay's comments come a week after various publications claimed Ten Hag had lost swathes of the dressing room at Old Trafford.

Sky Sports alleged that Ten Hag has lost 50 per cent of the dressing room, with players having questioned the Dutchman's playing style and treatment of the exiled Jadon Sancho.

After United's defeat to Bournemouth Ten Hag questioned his players' mentality.

The United boss said: "We started very poorly. There was I think a big difference, I think, to Chelsea when we started the game very well and we were very aggressive and very focused. Today, we were not.

Of conceding after five minutes, Ten Hag added: "It was our fault in the build-up. We knew they were aggressive in the pressing. You shouldn't give away the ball so easily. Then, defending in transition, we gave them too much space.

"It's a good goal from their side, but from our side you can't be starting like this. You have to get a better position and it all has to do with focusing."
