Erik ten Hag has been at Manchester United for a couple of weeks now and has already begun to lay the foundations in what he wants from the players, in terms of playing style and high standards.

Speaking to United Daily, Scott McTominay has discussed the mood within the camp under the new manager.

Now is the time to be optimistic. We’re really looking forward to what’s to come because the way the coaches have presented their ideas to all the players and all the staff is very promising for sure.

Having had several weeks away from United, with a few international games since, McTominay has claimed that there wasn’t much work needed to get back to a decent level of match-fitness.

To be honest, not a lot in terms of the off-season. Maybe five or six training sessions. But we only had two and a half weeks off so you can’t go blowing the gasket too quick. You need to make sure you’ve had enough rest and make sure you’ve got enough time in the legs to properly recover, but obviously there’s a chance to make your body stronger.

I feel good, I feel refreshed, I feel fit and getting over the time difference here, we’re looking forward to a good week in terms of the games that we’ve got coming up and the training as well. I think all of the players are more than locked in to do their jobs for the new coach, for sure.
