Manchester United legend Bryan Robson admits he’s been impressed by Erik ten Hag’s performance as Manchester United star so far.

Robson believes that Ten Hag’s approach to discipline is very similar to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Speaking to the Mirror, Robson said: “I got to know Erik ten Hag on the pre-season tour. We were away for 17, 18 days so on a trip like that you get to meet and get to know the players and staff more than at other times. Myself, Denis Irwin and Andy Cole (fellow ambassadors) went to all the training sessions so we chatted to the manager and his staff.

“I think he will do a really good job for Manchester United, He keeps his feet on the ground and talks a lot of sense.

“His training sessions were really good. He puts in place exactly what he wants. If the players are a little bit undisciplined off the pitch he soon cracks down on them.”
