MANCHESTER UNITED’S squad are allegedly concerned that incoming boss Erik ten Hag does not have a strong enough personality to transform the club.
The Red Devils finally confirmed that the Ajax manager would be joining them this summer last week.
The 52-year-old has penned a contract until June 2025 worth £9million-a-year.
United have endured another disappointing campaign, which will end trophyless again, and they look set to miss out on Champions League football.
Now Manchester Evening News have claimed that their players are encouraged by Ten Hag's 'coaching credentials'.
However, they have doubts over whether he has the personality to turn around their fortunes.
