What Ten Hag did post-Manchester City
Before facing off with Newcastle, Manchester United welcomed Manchester City to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
United were hammered 3-0 by their city rivals and after the game, a report from the Sun has detailed what Erik ten Hag did to his Manchester United squad.
Erik ten Hag is said to have ordered his Manchester United players to sit and listen to Manchester City’s celebrations on the other side of the Old Trafford tunnel upon returning to their respective dressing rooms.
It is added that the Manchester United boss wanted his squad to hear the away fans of Manchester City hailing their treble winners after an outstanding performance on Sunday afternoon before the Dutchman ‘tore into’ his team.
The report from the Sun states Ten Hag had planned to give his players a bonus day off on Monday if they had beaten City. That was obviously cancelled, and the squad were instead reportedly hauled in for a further post-mortem into how they were ‘humbled’ by the Premier League champions.
