Ten Hag cancels United day off

Manchester United’s players were due to be off yesterday, but Erik ten Hag had other ideas.

Reports say the Dutch coach brought the players in for training at Carrington after their 4-0 defeat by Brentford on Saturday.

Ten Hag said after the loss that he could have subbed the entire team off at half-time in West London.

“It’s naive, how we played today; you have to play more direct. We said: invite them in [to press] and play long. We attracted them, the space was high on the pitch and we had to choose that option.

“That’s what we couldn’t do. It’s no good, definitely. That’s not the standard on how we want to act.” – Sky Sports
