Clip of Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag’s ‘dreadful’ pass from playing days goes viral

Erik ten Hag has gone viral after footage emerged of the Manchester United boss horribly miscuing a pass in his playing days.

The Dutchman, 53, had a solid yet unremarkable active career as a centre back for FC Twente, De Graafschap, RKC Waalwijk and FC Utrecht in his home country before retiring at the age of 32. All in all he made in excess of 300 senior appearances.

Back then defenders didn't have to be as good with the ball at their feet as they are nowadays – and that showed when he would make the move into defensive midfield on occasion.

He's been done particularly dirty by one clip in which he receives the ball on the half turn in the middle of the park and attempts to play a simple pass out to the ring wing, where one of his team-mates was waiting.

But instead of finding him, Ten Hag blasted the ball into the stand for a throw-in to the opposition. The broadcast then cut to a close up camera shot of the back of his shirt to leave no doubt about who the culprit was.

Do you believe Ten Hag can turn around United's poor start to the season? Let us know in the comments section.

United fans were left embarrassed by the poor quality, with one pleading: "Don’t tell me that’s my manager." Another sighed: "That was dreadful."

Rival fans lapped it up on social media and teased the Red Devils supporters, with one joking: "Is this the same guy that said… eras comes to an end." A second quipped: "This one didn't want Ronaldo in his team? Lmao."

A third brutally commented: "No wonder he is leading Man Utd to the trenches." And referring to the recent poor form of Andre Onana, a fourth wrote: "Like coach like keeper."
