Ten Hag went too far with tough new rules for Man United players, says ex-star

Erik ten Hag has gone too far with tough new rules for Manchester United players, insists former Premier League star Gabby Agbonlahor.

The new Man United boss is said to have ‘five commandments’ that every player must follow to stay on their good books.

Ten Hag has strict rules that players must follow

Ten Hag banned players from drinking alcohol, banned personal chefs, warned that any late players would be dropped, insisted on regular body mass index checks and told players unhappy with him speak directly to their problems, rather than to their agents.

This final rule is meant to prevent the locker room leaks that have plagued the club in recent seasons – which Gary Neville has previously described as “disgusting”.

But Agbonlahor thinks these rules are “exaggerated” and unnecessary, as most of the squad will stick to them anyway.

“The players [drink anymore]maybe they’ll have a glass of red with dinner now, maybe at the weekend or something,” the former Aston Villa striker told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“The rules that Ten Hag gives are normal rules. Players will still be weighed in once or twice a week. It’s okay to keep an eye on what you’re eating.

“With alcohol the players don’t do it anyway, so when he comes along and gives these rules the players probably think, ‘We’re doing this anyway, blunder, that’s nothing new for us’.

“I feel like it’s overdone. [with the ban on] personal chefs, they will cook healthy food for them,” he added.

“Maybe just tell them that’s the kind of food you should eat.

“I think he’s overdoing it a bit now because the players are going to have personal chefs. They can cook healthy food, they know what foods to give the players, so why would they need to take food from the training ground?

On Ten Hag’s rule on leaking information to agents, Agbonlahor added: “It’s been a problem at Manchester United recently, a lot has been leaked from the dressing room, but how is he going to know who it is? ‘is ?”

“I remember Gary Neville saying last season that he knew who was leaking things but didn’t reveal it, so Ten Hag let me know and spoke to that person, but that shouldn’t happen.

“There were so many fights at Aston Villa, so many punches on the training ground, that no one ever found out, no one told anyone. This is how it should be.”
