Manchester United have banned a number of selected media groups from Erik ten Hag’s press conference for dressing room leaks, MySportDab reports.
In a report shared by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United spokesperson confirmed the club’s decision to place a ban on some media groups for publishing reports without contacting the club for their opinions.
The report adds the club is not at odds with the said media groups for ‘publishing stories they don’t like’ but for doing so without contacting the club to “comment, challenge, or contextualize the stories.’
With the ban, some certain media groups will not have opportunity to join Erik ten Hag’s press conferences before and after matches.
As of the time of filing this report, it is still unclear which media groups have been banned by Manchester United.
However, MySportDab understands the decision to ban the said media groups is due to a viral report on major English media platforms that Erik ten Hag has lost 50% of Man United dressing room due to his style of play, poor man-management, and rigorous training regimes.
The report was carried by Sky Sport, Manchester Evening News, ESPN and The Mirror on Monday, and it is believed all the four media groups will be affected by the ban.
Manchester United have been under dire strides this season on domestic and European scene with reports Erik ten Hag is losing the club’s dressing room.
The report adds some Man United players believed ten Hag is too robotic with his dressing room management with regimented training schedules that has not yielded result.
