Erik ten Hag's side are currently in Bangkok as part of their pre-season tour and took part in an open training session on Monday.

Media were granted access to the team and an interesting clip shared by BBC's Simon Stone shows just how disciplined United will be.

Ten Hag set up a small 'attack vs defence' game for the 10,000 strong crowd and used miniature nets.

Laurie Whitwell of The Athletic described the 52-year-old's instructions as 'purposeful' and whenever a goal was conceded, he told the players to drop and give him press-ups.

They all did it and it brought a big cheer from supporters, happy to see their team dedicated to the cause.

The clip quickly went viral on social media and it was received well.

One person said: "I used to do stuff like this in school."

Another commented: "This is next level compared to Ole and Ralf."

A third tweeted: "Are they going to do this in a real game?"

While another simply put: "I absolutely love this."

United's first game is Tuesday against bitter rivals Liverpool, then they'll jet off to Australia to face Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.

Tyrell Malacia remains United's only signing in the transfer window as the club continue to work on deals for Frenkie de Jong and Lisandro Martinez.

Christian Eriksen has verbally agreed to a three-year deal and is undergoing 'stringent' medial tests due to his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.

Six first-team players departed at the end of last season and it means ten Hag is working with a much smaller squad than anticipated at the moment.

Two of those departures, Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, means Fred is the senior member of United's midfield.

The Brazil international spoke glowingly of ten Hag in an interview with the Manchester Evening News and is excited for the new campaign.

"We're really looking forward to the new season, he said. "We have a new manager in Erik and I'm sure we'll achieve great things. That's what we're working towards. I hope we meet our goals by the end of the season.

"He's a great coach, training is good, intense. We're aiming to put what he says into our daily training.

"I hope we can win things in the future. It obviously won't be easy, it won't happen overnight. We'll look to be doing our best as soon as possible.

"It's really important for us to have a strong coach who has the last word alongside us. It gives us security and helps us a lot. He's very detailed in his work, he has his own fine details. All the day-to-day details. It's important having him alongside us. It's really good for our daily work."
