Erik ten Hag has pinned up three rules Man Utd stars must obey in dressing room

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has three clear rules each of his players must follow according to Red Devils midfielder Fred, who has since revealed what they are.

The Brazilian international has explained how he feels that Ten Hag’s principles are crucial to the way United have turned things around this season. The Dutchman got off to a slow start at the helm, but has since transformed the Red Devils into a side that look on course for Champions League qualification.

Ten Hag has also guided United to their first major final since 2021, with a date against Newcastle at Wembley coming up later this month for the Carabao Cup’s showpiece event. Since his arrival, the former Ajax boss has made it clear he will not suffer fools gladly.

Following the humiliating 4-0 defeat by Brentford in August, the United boss made his players run an extra 13km in training the next day – the same distance the Bees outran his players by during the game.

The United boss is also reported to have changed the club’s dress code, meal times and implemented a ban on mobile phones being used in certain parts of the training ground.

More recently, Fred has shed light on the three rules Ten Hag has plastered on the dressing room walls to serve as a reminder for every United star.

Speaking to the Times, the Brazilian international explained: “He has put rules [up] inside the dressing room.

“Don’t be late, don’t do wrong things, always do what you can to help your partner – and that’s important.”

Judging by the upturn in United’s recent fortunes, it would appear that Ten Hag’s method of messaging and management style is clearly having the desired effect on his squad.

Vice-captain Bruno Fernandes also waxed lyrical about his boss after United booked their place in the Carabao Cup final earlier this week.

“I think last year was about confidence,” the Portugal international explained. “You win one game, you lost another one, you draw another one – you never get that run of victories that gave you the confidence to keep going and keep pushing yourself to do the best.

“We had a bad feeling that any moment of the game could go against us – a corner, a shot, some moment. The confidence was low and that creates uncertainty but obviously I think this season the main thing was the results. You get more confident.

“The idea of the manager is on the team, you can see it. The players that came to the club are also making a part of that but the ones that stayed are also playing and making a part of that too.”
