Disgusted Erik ten Hag rips into his Manchester United flops, then CANCELS their day off and orders them into training just hours after Brentford debacle – despite not playing again for eight days
- Erik ten Hag has cancelled his player’s day off following yesterday’s defeat
- Man United remain winless in the Premier League following 4-0 loss to Brentford
- The Dutchman has instead ordered his player’s in for extra training sessions
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has taken the brazen move to cancel his player’s day off following yesterday’s humiliating 4-0 Premier League defeat away to Brentford.
Instead the Dutchman has hauled all of the club’s stars into Carrington for extra training as they analyse how things went so wrong against Thomas Frank’s side, as reported by the Sun.
United players are expecting a dressing down by their new boss after their team full of international superstars were embarrassed on their visit to the capital.
The Red Devils aren’t set to play again for another eight days when they travel to face Southampton on August 27. But that hasn’t stopped the ex-Ajax manager ripping up any plans for relaxation after their disastrous Saturday afternoon in London.

Ten Hag has now lost his opening two Premier League games a previous loss to Brighton
The 52-year-old has struggled to implement his new ideas, with his side producing extremely poor performances, boasting poor organisation and an easily-beaten defence at the source of their frustrations.
Ten Hag’s side have conceded six Premier League goals following 2-1 and 4-0 defeats, and their solitary league goal being scored by Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister who turned the ball into his own net.
His squad were blown away by a Brentford side that scored four times inside the opening 34 minutes to hand the United manager a second consecutive league defeat.
Speaking after their latest defeat the United manager branded his side as being ‘rubbish.
‘It’s rubbish, and it’s poor. We need higher standards than that, that’s clear,’ he told BeIN Sports.
‘We have to deliver and we didn’t. We have to change, that’s quite clear.
’35 minutes you concede four goals. It is not possible. The team has to take the responsibility. I feel really sorry for the fans. We let them down.’
The former Premier League champions remain winless in the Premier League and sit rock bottom of the league table following defeats to Brighton and Brentford.
