MANCHESTER UNITED have introduced a ‘no d***heads’ rule in the transfer market under new manager Erik ten Hag.
United signed the likes of Lisandro Martínez, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, Antony and Tyrell Malacia in the summer window.
And according to The Telegraph, new boss Ten Hag was overseeing a transfer plan that meant the club made sure not to recruit “D*** heads”.
That was in jeopardy when they expressed an interest in ex-Stoke striker Marko Arnautovic, who is known for his sloppy attitude.
One of the reasons for Manchester United’s upswing in form is the strict transfer policy.
The Telegraph also reports that Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and goalkeepers David de Gea and Tom Heaton have all acted as leaders at United.
Another factor was turning off wifi to force players to interact with each other.
United are currently sixth, nine points behind leaders Arsenal but with two games in hand.
It’s a good start to the season under Ten Hag but the Dutchman has been warned by Pep Guardiola that he must win trophies or risk being sacked.
Guardiola said: “If United trust him and let him build a team by giving him years and years, that will be welcome. I can’t say anything else.
“But he knows, I know, everyone knows we depend on results.
“I’m still here at City because we’ve won in the past. Otherwise I would not be here.
“Erik knows it – and all the managers there no longer know it. If you can’t win at the big clubs, you don’t get time.
“If you don’t win, then you’re in trouble.”
