Ten Hag’s Humiliation: Manchester City Defeat Leaves Dutch Coach Furious
The recent 0-3 derby loss against Manchester City has left coach Ten Hag devastated. The Dutch coach expressed his disappointment and anger towards his team’s performance, stating that they did not compete well enough. According to The Sun, after the game, Ten Hag made a bold move that shocked his players. He forced the entire squad to sit in silence and listen to the Manchester City players celebrating their victory on the other side of the tunnel.
A Controversial Gesture
This gesture did not sit well with the players and has caused tension within the locker room. Additionally, Ten Hag had planned to reward his players with an extra day off if they had defeated City, but that has now been canceled. Instead, the team has been summoned for an in-depth analysis of their humiliating defeat. Ten Hag has informed the players that they will be assigned personalized videos highlighting their mistakes.
Forced to Listen to the Cheers of the Rivals
Furthermore, Ten Hag also made his players listen to the cheers of the Manchester City fans, who chanted the names of their heroes after defeating United. This added insult to injury for the Red Devils.
A Nightmare Start to the Season
This series of humiliating punishments comes as a result of Manchester United’s poor performance in the Premier League. With five defeats in the first ten games, they currently sit in eighth place, a staggering 11 points behind the league leaders, Tottenham. This is the worst start to a season for a United coach since 1986-87 when Ron Atkinson was fired.
Fans Turn Against Ten Hag
The Manchester United supporters are growing increasingly frustrated with Ten Hag’s leadership and are putting pressure on the club to remove him from the bench. The derby defeat has further questioned his position as the head coach of the Red Devils. The hashtag ‘TenHagOut’ has become a trending topic among a section of the fans. However, it would cost United more than £15 million to terminate Ten Hag’s contract.
