SportsTalk reported on October 31 that according to the Sun, after Manchester United lost 0-3 to Manchester City, Ten Hag was very angry and forced the players to listen to Manchester City celebrate.
The Sun said that when Ten Hag and the players returned to the locker room, he ordered the players to sit quietly and listen to the other players. The Manchester City players on one side celebrated, and the visiting team fans celebrated.
Ten Hag then harshly criticized the players’ performance in the second half, and the previously scheduled extra vacation was cancelled. Players were also told they would have extra “homework” in which they would need to watch a customized video for each player that pointed out what they were doing wrong.
