Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has issued a warning to his squad, telling the underperforming players that ‘good is not good enough’ under his regime.
The 52-year-old took over Manchester United on Monday morning, having signed a three-year deal with the club last month.
He joins a Manchester United side which finished sixth in the Premier League this season.
Ten Hag says bringing success back to Old Trafford is a ‘big challenge’ and has warned his squad he expects them to ‘co-operate’ and buy into his ‘total high-pressing’ style of football.
“That is what I expect,” the 52-year-old said in an interview with MUTV.
“I have high expectations from myself and that is also what I demand from my squad.
“They have to co-operate together and they have to give every day their best. And I would say, for me, good is not good enough. We have to do better.
“We are playing in the Theatre of Dreams and have to entertain the opponent. We are playing in the opponent’s half and we have to do attacking football.
“We have to do the pressing, the total high-pressing – that is a similarity to Ajax also – and the adventurous football.”
