Speaking to Sky Sports about Erik ten Hag’s philosophy, Bruno Fernandes said: “I think it’s clear. He explains really well what he wants and he demands that so anyone not doing what he demands they know they will be punished.
“So I think when you talk about discipline, it’s about that. He’s very clear, so there’s no way you can escape from that. Even if you don’t understand English you can understand the way he wants to play.
“I think that is really important for us. Nobody can get away with anything with him and the senior players have to play their part too, making sure that everyone is on the same page.”
Manchester United have won five of their pre-season games under the new manager but Ten Hag continues to demand nothing but the best from his players.
The real test for the Dutchman and the Red Devils will come next week when the 2022-23 Premier League campaign gets underway with a game against Brighton.
