MANCHESTER UNITED’s under-fire stars are being urged to visit the Old Trafford MUSEUM after Erik ten Hag and his staff were shocked at how little some of them know about the club’s glorious history.
The Old Trafford manager grilled his players after last Sunday’s humiliating 6-3 derby smash at Manchester City.
Ten Hag challenged his side on their knowledge of club history and football DNA – and was stunned when some admitted they had never set foot in the museum.
A United insider revealed: “The manager was furious with the performance against City.
“He told the players that no one representing Manchester United can freeze and be beaten that badly.
“He said: ‘You play for United. Don’t you know what that means, given the history of the club?’”
United have been champions a record 20 times and have won three European Cups, 12 FA Cups and five League Cups.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won the Treble in 1999, while United became the first English side to win the European Cup in 1968.
Our source added: “He asked them what they knew about the club. When some said they had never looked around the museum or just traversed it, he was amazed.
“He has visited us twice since joining this summer.

“He has told all the players that they need to take the time to go in either before it opens or after it closes so they can learn more about what it means to represent United.”
United have been asked for comment.
