Manchester United Fans Are Fans Of Erik Ten Hag's Touchline Instructions

Manchester United fans don't have much to be cheerful about right now, so anything positive about Erik ten Hag they can find is worth clutching on to.


It was another poor day for United on Saturday as their attempts to somehow finish in the top four in the Premier League, despite being awful for much of the season, surely took a final blow, as they lost to rivals Arsenal.

It's not just United's form on the pitch that's been questioned for sometime, with the players' attitudes and passion for getting the team out of their problems, with Paul Scholes confirming dressing room issues via Jesse Lingard.

However, with Ten Hag coming into the team, it looks like the new manager won't be accepting any bad attitudes as a video of him giving team instructions prove.

The video shows forward Noa Lang, now at Club Brugge, attempting to argue with his manager's instructions who shouts back for him to "shut up," and then says "it's our game, not just yours."

There has been more worries for United on the sidelines, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick reportedly having to tell coach Darren Fletcher off for shouting instructions at the players.

Nemanja Matic was also spotted trying to give abuse back to an Arsenal fan, after he was substituted off in the second half in Saturday's loss.

It all adds up to a complete mess for the team right now that Ten Hag is going to have to sort over the summer, along with trying to improve the current players and integrate any new signings.

Fans are excited about the 52-year-old's arrival and there's plenty of things that have caught their attention already, aside from his touchline instructions.

The Old Trafford faithful have also been impressed by a video of the Ajax boss, who is on his way to a third Eredivisie title whilst in charge, discussing his tactics.

Evidence of his team playing attacking, high pressing football is also sure to get United fans onside, especially considering what football they've been used to in recent years.

One player especially who should be able to fit in is Donny van de Beek, with the former Ajax star not having made an impact since moving to the Premier League in August 2020 and currently being on loan with Everton.

The Dutch midfielder worked under Ten Hag at the Johan Cruyff Arena and helped the team reach the Champions League semi finals in 2019.
