They currently sit 11th in the Premier League table, six points behind Manchester City.

And Ten Hag has pulled out all the stops in a bid to boost performance.

According to The Daily Mail, Man Utd players have been told to stay at Carrington until 2pm on training days rather than leave before lunchtime.

Ten Hag wants the squad to use the ground’s newly-revamped canteen so that he can keep on top of nutrition with the help of United’s head chef Omar Meziane.

Players now also wear blood glucose monitors and sweat patches on match days to monitor individual hydration and nutritional needs.

These are just some of the measures introduced by Ten Hag following his arrival at the club.

As soon as he took the helm at Old Trafford last summer, the Dutchman introduced a series of new rules – including a ban on alcohol.

He has also requested that a brand-new players lounge be developed at Old Trafford.


Former United midfielder James Garner recently opened up about how “strict” Ten Hag is around members of the first team squad.

Garner, who joined Everton last summer, told BBC Sport: “Ten Hag is a very approachable guy but is very strict. He takes no one bending the rules.

“He will say it how it is and will punish people if they have done the wrong things.

“My talk with him was easy. I asked him plain and simple whether I was going to be in the squad or if he saw me playing a part.

“I felt the conversation did not go as well as I wanted and I made the decision to move.”
