Erik ten Hag lays down 5 laws at Manchester United


Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is said to have put five strict rules in place for the squad ahead of his first season in charge of the club.

The Dutch boss has reportedly laid down his authority in Manchester by introducing several measures to address on- and off-field issues at Old Trafford, and bring back unity and discipline.

The Red Devils were riddled with reports of ill-discipline last season, with some players said to be leaking dressing-room matters to the press during Ralf Rangnick's six months in charge, and it was suggested that this was also the case under previous manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Here are five United defenders who have reportedly been put up for sale:

Ten Hag, considered a disciplinarian who likes to micro-manage, has now implemented a strict guideline to curb any leaks regarding internal affairs, per the Daily Mirror

It is understood that the squad has been told that if they are found to be leaking changing-room information, they will be frozen out of the team.

The former Ajax Amsterdam boss is said to have also demanded that players must show up to training and team meetings on time or they will be dropped, regardless of who they are.

The team has also been told they are barred from consuming alcohol during match weeks as all of them are expected to be in excellent condition come game days.

A rule regarding the players' diet has also been enacted, with the 52-year-old wanting the same chefs to prepare meals for each squad member rather than the players having their own catering staff to cook meals for them. He has also insisted that their BMI (body mass index) will be checked monthly.

Changes to the menu in Carrington have also been introduced, with the new manager wanting fish and vegetables to take priority.
