Erik ten Hag shows Man Utd flops video clips of 7-0 Liverpool humiliation to 'make them angry' before extra sessions | The Sun
ERIK TEN HAG reportedly showed his squad clips of the 7-0 defeat to Liverpool to make them angry.
The downbeat United stars were called into Carrington on Monday for a recovery session.
But rather than punish his players with physical work as he did after the 4-0 loss to Brentford in August, Ten Hag focused on strengthening their mindset.
According to the Daily Mail, the United boss spoke about the importance of not losing confidence – after all his side have won nine of their last 12 games.
He did not show a replay of the Liverpool embarrassment but did show selected clips designed to rile up his players.
Ten Hag did likewise at Anfield, telling his squad to be silent in the changing rooms at full-time so they could listen to the Liverpool celebrations.

His was the only voice in the dressing room as he did not give his players a chance to speak.
And he then tore a strip off them, warning they would all be axed if there was a repeat of a performance which he publicly slammed as “unprofessional” and “unacceptable”.
And Ten Hag told his players they were fortunate not to be travelling back from Merseyside with the fans.
It is believed that it was the "angriest" the manager has "ever been".
