Sky Sport News ran some footage from Erik ten Hag’s first training session as Manchester United manager.
The broadcaster released footage 24 hours after Ten Hag was welcomed at Carrington by his players, but not all squad members were in attendance due to extended breaks.
The new manager is expected to intensify training over the coming weeks in order to prepare his team for the upcoming Premier League season, which kicks off with a home game against Brighton.
In the video below, you can see the players doing some light running, Marcus Rashford having a chat with Steve McClaren, and the manager joking during a rondos drill.

First impressions are important because Ten Hag will need this group of players to buy into his philosophy.
The same players who let down previous managers.
