McClaren claimed that Man United players need to be ready to give everything during training and matches under Erik ten Hag.

The Man United assistant referenced the players' body language during the 2020/21 Premier League campaign as an aspect that needs to improve next season.

"You have to be ready, have to be ready to train, you have to be ready to play, ready to impact as a sub, you have to react," McClaren said on the latest edition of the McClaren Performance Podcast.

"A lot of people now, body language, arms up in the air, you’ve got to react to get that ball back, win that ball back. Whatever situation, react quick, don’t think about it.

"You’ve got to accept the rules, the conditions, you’ve got to accept the consequences if you do things wrong. You’ve got to commit, you’ve got to be a class act, especially in today’s football."
