A report has revealed three rules Erik ten Hag has set for Manchester United’s players and staff during their pre-season camp in Thailand.

Ten Hag left Ajax earlier this summer to take over at Man Utd. He joins them after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick had spells in charge last term.

The Dutchman made a name for himself during his time at Ajax. He helped them win the Eredivisie title on three separate occasions.

Pre-season Panic seems to start earlier every year like a really sh*tty Christmas

Speaking last week, ex-Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy questioned the manager’s supposed ‘five commandments’.

These include a ban on alcohol and personal chefs, players will be dropped if they are late and if stars are unhappy, they must speak directly to Ten Hag instead of their agents.

Now The Telegraph are reporting Ten Hag is looking to ‘unite a splintered squad’ this summer.

United are currently in Bangkok ahead of Tuesday’s friendly against Liverpool. Ahead of this game, Ten Hag is said to have banned players from using their phones during meal times.

He is also ‘insisting that players eat together all the time’ to help ‘foster a sense of unity among the squad and staff’.

The report adds: ‘Ten Hag’s attention to detail even extends to the colour of outfits staff should wear.

‘So on Monday, for example, female members of staff were asked to wear white and the men black.’

Meanwhile, Man Utd defender Luke Shaw taken a dig at former managers Solskjaer and Rangnick over lack of “structure”.

And Luke Shaw, who only made 27 appearances in all competitions last season, has taken a dig at Ten Hag’s predecessors.

“It’s clear that he’s a top, top manager. He has a structure to play the way he wants us to play,” Shaw said.

“We haven’t had that for quite a while, and it was clear to see last season, which was extremely disappointing. We have to bounce back [from last season] and he has been working us extremely hard, but I think we need it.

“We’re really looking forward to this season because I know it’s going to be much better than the last one.”
