Scholes mocks Erik ten Hag’s new five rules for Man Utd players

Former Manchester United player Paul Scholes has mocked new head coach Erik ten Hag and his new five strict rules for players.

Former Ajax manager Ten Hag took over at United this summer after a poor season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick last term, with the club finishing in sixth place and once again failing to land a trophy.

Ten Hag is yet to take charge of any competitive game but already has lots of work to do, with several high-profile players leaving Old Trafford in recent weeks, including Paul Pogba, and Cristiano Ronaldo looking for a new club.

The Dutchman has already laid out a number of new rules for his team, according to the Daily Mirror, which include a ban on alcohol during a match-week and also a ban on personal chefs.

A third rule is that he will drop any player who is late to training or team meetings without exception, while he will also keep a close eye over his squad’s weight and is set to even implement weekly BMI checks to make sure his players stay in shape.

The fifth rule – and perhaps the biggest – is that all player grievances must be run past him and his squad are not allowed to talk to agents or other sources when they are unhappy.

United legend Scholes, who won the Premier League 11 times, FA Cup three times and Champions League twice at Old Trafford, offered his opinion on the new rules through social media.

He posted an Instagram story of the article with an emoji and the caption: ‘Not sure I would’ve coped without my personal chef and no agent to moan to.’

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are willing to sell Ronaldo for a £13 million fee, according to reports in Brazil.
