Erik Ten Hag hosted a BBQ for his players and their families on Sunday at Carrington to emphasize the value of teamwork at Manchester United.
The topic of unity and encouraging the same camaraderie that helped United perform well during Ten Hag’s first season in command has been discussed around Old Trafford throughout the team’s rocky start to the season. The staff and player families were also thanked by the Dutchman for their assistance.
Following an equally well-attended club-wide event at Old Trafford last month, the United squad showed up for the day, which was well greeted by the players.
With a variety of kid-friendly activities including a bouncy castle, face painting, and entertainment, the families were given what was billed as a nutritious BBQ.
Ten Hag reportedly moved about the room conversing with family members and expressing gratitude for the efforts they make to support the players’ success.
According to reports, the occasion had been planned for a few weeks, and thanks to Saturday night’s energizing victory against Burnley, it was a success.
It has lessened the pressure on Ten Hag after a difficult start in which United dropped four of their first six games. However, three of those losses were on the road at Bayern Munich, Arsenal, and Tottenham; United hopes to rebound with a run of more winnable games.
