Golden clip from MUTV’s pre-season coverage.
Manchester United played well in their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace and we got to see lots of great combination play from the players that featured.
Erik ten Hag saw his side score some sensational goals, with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho getting their names on the scoresheet.
Martial got his third goal in three games on tour and lead the line superbly against Patrick Vieira’s side. We can only hope that will give him the confidence to push on and show his true ability next season in a United shirt.
However, a video from the game has surfaced online and we couldn’t help but laugh after watching it.

Ten Hag “wtf are you doing”

Although we can’t be 100% certain, it sounds like Ten Hag shouts “David, what the f*** are you doing?!” after the Spanish goalkeeper launched the ball downfield, rather than play a shorter pass to keep possession of the ball.
United lost possession as a result and this is how Ten Hag is going to iron these bad habits out of the players. They are not bad habits because we lost the ball, but they are because they go against how our manager wants the team to approach games.
Ten Hag wants his players to maintain the pressure they put on opponents, so we can’t have our keeper kicking the ball anywhere if it’s away from the box…
De Gea’s distribution is something he needs to work on under Ten Hag. There is no disputing that and I’d love to see him as our long-term number one.
