Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has warned his players that egos in the locker room will not be tolerated.
The 52-year-old has been tasked with leading the Red Devils out of their recent slump and back on track after they finished the 2021-22 season without a trophy.
Manchester United has not won the Premier League in six years, with the dressing room splintering and training ground leaks marring a disastrous campaign.
According to the Sun, Erik ten Hag, who took over for Ralf Rangnick, has already laid out his demands to the playing squad in a stern email.
He warned that he will not tolerate laziness or betrayal.
According to The Sun, the Dutchman “sent the first-team players an email, telling them that football is a team sport and that no individual is more important than any other.”
“His emphasis is all on the team — despite United possessing world class stars.
“He wants the players to train at a higher intensity so that each session is like a game.”
Erik ten Hag joined Manchester United in the summer after helping Ajax win the Dutch league.
Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League last season and will be looking forward to a season full of high expectations.
