Ten Hag calls in Man Utd players for early morning training

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has called in his players for 9am training this week.

The Manchester Evening News says Ten Hag ordered players to report to training by 9am on Tuesday - something Sir Alex Ferguson did during his legendary spell as United manager.

It marks a change to the last permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who would allow players to report for training one hour later.

On Tuesday, assistant manager Steve McLaren, who also worked with Ferguson at Old Trafford, was one of the first to show up by arriving at 7.45am.

Ten Hag was driven into Carrington just after 8am, while it's said that all players who have returned for pre-season were at the training complex before 9am.
