EPL: ‘F**king rubbish’ – Ten Hag slams Zidane

Manchester United youngster, Zidane Iqbal, has become the latest player to feel the wrath of Erik ten Hag during their pre-season tour.

Earlier this week, Ten Hag tore into goalkeeper David De Gea on the touchline.

De Gea had booted the ball up the field in the closing stages of United’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in Melbourne.

And during an open training session in Perth on Thursday, Ten Hag slammed Iqbal during a quick keep-ball exercise.

After spotting the 19-year-old making a mistake during the drill, Ten Hag yelled at Iqbal: “Keep the ball on the floor.

“Zidane… hey. Keep the ball. F rubbish!”

Iqbal has impressed off the bench in all three of United’s pre-season games so far and reports earlier this month claimed Ten Hag has been ‘surprised’ that the midfielder barely featured under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Ralf Rangnick last season.
