Erik Ten Hag Fumes At Man Utd Players For Failing To Follow His Rule Against Dortmund

Manchester United are signing off their 2023 pre-season tour of the USA with a 3-2 loss against Borussia Dortmund in Las Vegas. The Red Devils have now lost their last three games.

Diogo Dalot and Antony were both on the scoresheet for the Red Devils but goals from Malen and Moukoko gave the German side the deserved win over the English side.

After the game, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag reveals why he is angry at his players. The former Ajax manager claimed that his players failed to follow his rules in the match and gave away two goals.

“Yeah, [the game was] two parts, the first hour was good, playing as a team, lot of dynamic, good pressing,” a frustrated Ten Hag said.

“So it was really enjoyable to see and that’s what I wanted to say at half-time, but all of a sudden, they give two goals away. They were giveaways and that was annoying. But the last half an hour, it was bad, a poor performance. They didn’t follow the rules at all, not in pressing, not in building up or when attacking. They were 11 individuals on the pitch.

“That wasn’t good at all. I said to the team, I think it was a good tour, but you want to finish with a good performance and there was only 60 minutes that I was pleased with, but not with the goals we conceded because the first one was poor defending and the second one was poor in build-up.

“That’s not us, we have to keep control, keep responsibility on the ball and it was the same for the 3-2. That can’t happen and it’s unforgivable, even if it’s a friendly.”
