Manchester United players have been warned about what will happen if they do not co-operate with incoming coach Erik ten Hag once he takes charge of the club next season.
The Red Devils currently retain the leadership of Ralf Rangnick until the end of the current season, with the German tactician taking charge of the first team on a temporary basis since the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer earlier in the season.
It now looks like Ten Hag will be next for Manchester United, and former Ajax and Netherlands star Raphael van der Vaart has spoken about what the club’s players can expect from the Dutch tactical.
United are not known for the best of situations, as many coaches appear to have been let down by players in a difficult post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, but van der Vaart suggested Tin Hag would represent nothing of the sort.
