Ten Hag Reveals Players Were Not Ready To Play In 2-2 Draw Vs Leeds United – Says It’s Unacceptable

Speaking to the media after the Leeds game on Wednesday, Erik ten Hag said: “When you start a derby like we did it’s unacceptable. You have to be ready to fight and we weren’t ready for the battle.

“It looked like it [his players were not ready] but not me. We knew they will go aggressive, front foot, against a team on a good run, they’ll try to get into duels and that’s what they did.

“I start my talk at half time with: ‘Guys we are not ready in the first half, make sure you are this time.’ And then we go out and concede again. I am disappointed we lose all the battles in the first minutes of each half.”

Manchester United conceded two quick goals against Leeds before coming back to secure a 2–2 draw in the second half on Wednesday.
