Erik ten Hag 'removed' five Man United players from first-team dressing room
Man United made big changes to their squad this summer.
Erik ten Hag has removed five Manchester United players from the first team dressing room, according to reports.
The Red Devils coach reportedly made the decision in order to make room for the club's new signings.
Ten Hag moves five players out of Man United first team.
According to The Mirror, Ten Hag removed five Man United players from the first team dressing room. The dressing room at the club's training facility can reportedly only accommodate 24 players.
Phil Jones, Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe, Shola Shoretire and Tegan Mendi are the players who are said to have been demoted.
The Dutch coach is looking to make room for the club's new signings. Man United had a busy transfer window, and completed deals for Tyrell Malacia, Christin Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, Casemiro, Antony and Martin Dubravka.
The Red Devils spent over £200m on new players this summer.
Phil Jones is the most high-profile United player to be demoted.
The former England defender has only played 13 times for the Red Devils since the 2019/20 season due to injury and fitness issues.
Jones, 30, joined Man United from Blackburn Rovers in 2011 and has played 229 times for the Old Trafford club.
Brandon Williams, meanwhile, has played 50 times for United, but spent last season on loan with Norwich City and doesn't appear to be in Ten Hag's plans.
