  • Footage has emerged revealing Manchester United players’ biggest shortcomings ahead of the new season
  • The video that is doing rounds online shows some Manchester United players being criticized for to many mistakes in training
  • Erik Ten Hag has now embarked on full training sessions with the team ahead of the new season

Interesting footage has emerged of new Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag calling out the players for making “too many mistakes” in training.

Ten Hag is slowly settling in at United, and barely days into training with the first team, and the Dutchman just might have realised the task that awaits him at Old Trafford.

As of Wednesday, July 6, most of the Man United first-team players had returned to training ahead of pre-season, with the exception of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is still away for family reasons.

In one of their latest training sessions, players were put to the test in a one-touch training drill by their new manager.

The video has since been shared on Twitter, and one can hear someone from the touchline yelling “Too many mistakes”.

It is still unclear whether the call was aimed at one player in particular or the entire squad.

But it is also kind to note that the statement was made when Scott McTominay had the ball, and when the players were being urged to pass using their right foot.

Comparisons have since been drawn using the clip with another different one showing Ajax players performing a similar routine with incredible precision.

Quite interestingly, one player who seemed to impress during the drill was Harry Maguire.

Shortly after arriving home from his honeymoon, Maguire is back in training and if the clip is anything to go by, he thoroughly impressed the gaffer, who could be heard yelling praises toward the captain.

Ten Hag introduces tough rules at Man United

Meanwhile, Sports Brief reported on a new set of rules enforced by Erik Ten Hag in a bid to get the best out of Manchester United players.

The move is understood to be aimed at transforming the philosophy of the club.

Key among the regulations introduced include a ban on sideways and backwards passing.
