Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has lambasted Zidane Iqbal during their training on Thursday morning.
Zidane is the second Manchester United to feel the Dutch coach’s wrath after goalkeeper David De Gea, who Ten Hag was caught earlier this week tearing into on the touchline.
The Spaniard had booted the ball up the pitch in the closing stages of United’s 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace in Melbourne and his action angered the former Ajax boss.
Ten Hag did not hesitate in calling out Zidane on Thursday morning for his performance in a quick keep-ball exercise.
The Dutch boss spotted the 19-year-old making a mistake during the drill and bellowed at him saying, “Keep the ball on the floor. Zidane… hey. Keep the ball. F****** rubbish!”
Iqbal has impressed off the bench in all three of United’s pre-season games so far and reports earlier this month claimed Ten Hag has been ‘surprised’ that the midfielder barely featured under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Ralf Rangnick last season.
