Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reportedly shown his players videos of Manchester City and Liverpool to motivate themselves.
According The sunTen Hag plays clips of rivals, to show how far United really are.
The Dutchman was furious after the 4-0 loss to Brentford, and he made his feelings known to the underachieving Man United players.
The report goes on to state, “Ten Hag has warned his players to tell their loved ones that they will ‘come early and come home late’ until they sort out their issues.”
“Fuming Ten Hag is stunned by the Red Devils’ dismal performance in an opening fortnight which confirmed the new manager’s honeymoon period was over before it even began.”
“The former Ajax chief gave his underachieving players the two barrels after the 4-0 loss to Thomas Frank’s Bees left United at the foot of the Premier League.
Ten Hag was particularly disappointed as Brentford trailed United by 14 kilometers and pressed 21 times to his side’s seven.
“He warned the first team to tell their loved ones that they will ‘come early and come home late’ until they properly understand how he wants them to play and demonstrate that on the pitch.”
Ten Hag reportedly attacked Bruno Fernandes after his abysmal display against Brentford.
He made it very clear that despite a player’s status in the team, no one is unbeatable.
United face their biggest test against Liverpool at Old Trafford tomorrow.
Ten Hag hopes his methods will bear fruit, as his team seeks their first victory of the season.
