It even includes where they go on holiday
Erik ten Hag is wasting no time in laying down the law early into his Manchester United tenure and has ordered for reports on every single player ahead of their return for pre-season.
Ten Hag is keen to implement the winning culture that saw him become so successful at Ajax and is planning to meet with each player personally on their return from their jollies abroad.
The 52-year-old wants to ensure standards haven't been slipping during players' time away and according to the Mirror, he has demanded that he be informed about each players' home and family life so he can get the best judgement of their character.
He wants to know so much that the Dutchman has even requested for the United squad to log where they have been on holiday so that they can return in the best shape possible.
