WATCH: Ten Hag unimpressed with Manchester United squad as he attempts to implement new philosophy

Erik ten Hag is a man on a mission at Manchester United. The Dutch manager wants a complete overhaul at Old Trafford to get the United juggernaut running after a trophy-less 2021-22 campaign.

He knows the task is daunting and his predecessors in David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have had a tough time bringing back the glory days.

Ten Hag has already started his training sessions with the Man Utd squad and is set to fly to Thailand on Friday for pre-season commitments - but the former Ajax manager was unimpressed with his troops during a training session at Carrington.

"Too many mistakes" - complains Erik ten Hag

During a drill, the Red Devils were seen practising one-touch passing with their right foot. However, a few players, including Bruno Fernandes, failed to pass to the right foot.

Assistant coach Steve McClaren and Mitchell van der Gaag were screaming instructions to the players to execute the routine correctly.

"On the right foot. Bruno on the right foot!"

At the end of the clip, Ten Hag is clearly unimpressed with the performance of the players and said "Too many mistakes."

It is clear that the Man Utd manager has a lot of work to do with the players. They are set to fly to Thailand on Friday where they will lock horns with fierce rivals Liverpool on July 12.
