Ten Hag continues to work his United squad
The hard work is continuing at Carrington as Erik ten Hag analyses his Manchester United players and prepares a squad for Tour 2022.
Our new manager began his tenure at the training ground on Monday morning and has notably been arriving early each day - and leaving late - to ensure everything is meticulously prepared for his group.
With a keen eye for detail, Ten Hag plays an active role in all sessions alongside his assistants Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren.
Our videos so far this week have highlighted how the Dutchman is often in conversation with his players, offering instructions and advice.
Erik is working with a group that comprises of established senior players like David De Gea, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.
They are mixed with fledgling Academy players such as Alvaro Fernandez, Will Fish, Zidane Iqbal, Charlie Savage and Alejandro Garnacho, to name a few.
The outdoor session on Thursday was intense and enjoyable for all involved, mixing plenty of ball work with hard running to build sharpness.

Many of our senior players are still enjoying their summer breaks after taking part in various international fixtures earlier this month. They are expected to join the squad at Carrington next week.
Those returning Reds will all begin their pre-seasons with rounds of medical testing, as is protocol, before joining the main group out on the training pitches.
Significantly, Erik and his coaching staff are considering our travelling squad for Tour 2022. That group of players will depart from Manchester Airport on Friday 8 July, for a trip that will visit Thailand and Australia.
