Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United manager, has reportedly charged his players to bounce back from the 7-0 thrashing in the hands of Liverpool on Sunday.
The squad reported back to the Carrington training ground at 9am on Monday morning.
Ten Hag had arrived two hours earlier and gathered them for a short talk.
According to SportsMail, the theme of his message was ‘What happened doesn’t destroy all the good work we have done this season’
The former Ajax boss also spoke about the importance of not being depressed or losing confidence.
He said they would benefit from more sessions with Rainier Koers, the Dutch sports psychologist brought to the club by Ten Hag.
There was no replay of the game but Ten Hag did show his players selected video clips ‘to make them angry’.
United’s next game is the Europa League last-16 first leg clash against Real Betis at Old trafford.
