But he now reportedly plans to limit his troops’ time on their phones by banning them from all mealtimes.

That’s according to The Daily Telegraph, who claim Ten Hag is trying to “unite a dressing room that became splintered last season.”

Ten Hag has also made it mandatory for players to attend mealtimes without their phones so they can speak to one another more and “mix freely.”

The players aren’t the only ones feeling the brunt of Ten Hag’s changes, which are also affecting club staff.

It’s claimed the former Ajax boss is making changes to staff attire – with female members of staff required to wear white on Mondays and their male counterparts dress in black.

Although Ten Hag has rung in the changes off the pitch, he’s still only made one addition to the squad that finished in sixth place last season.

And he’s desperate to bring in more reinforcements before the new Premier League season gets underway.

He said: “In my first press conference I said already we are definitely searching for players in midfield, we also have a need in offence. We are still looking for players.

“It’s going to be a long season but a season that is quite unusual due to the World Cup so you need to be prepared for this and need more players than in a normal season.

“We want to add the right players. If the opportunity is there, we will strike.”

Transfer plea aside, Ten Hag believes the current crop of players at Old Trafford are capable of meeting his style of play.

He said: “We are working on this and you cannot achieve this in one or two weeks, it takes longer.”

United will kickstart their pre-season tomorrow afternoon, facing bitter rivals Liverpool in a friendly in Bangkok.
