Erik ten Hag claims he found ‘NO-GOOD CULTURE’ at Man United when he arrived, as he refuses to refer to Jadon Sancho by name, having already kicked out Cristiano Ronaldo over his behaviour

Erik ten Hag says he inherited a ‘no-good culture’ when he took over as the Manchester United manager but told reporters about he was taking a ‘strict stance’ with his squad for the remainder of the 2023-2024 campaign.

Ten Hag refused to name Jadon Sancho when referring to the ‘standards’ he was setting within the squad but did say players would be punished if they ‘crossed lines’.  

During Manchester United’s press conference on Friday, Ten Hag spoke about the standards he was setting within the squad. He said: ‘Strict lines is what the club asked me because there was no good culture before last season so to set good standards, that is what I did and it is my job to control the standards.

‘It is never someone makes one mistake, it is a whole process before you come to a certain outcome about strict lines. There is a structure to cross lines so you have to be strong.’
