A Los Angeles sports doctor said Eric Ten Hag risked injury to his Manchester United players by making them run 13.8 km in the heat on their day off.
Sportsmail reported how angry Tin Hag made his side go the exact distance Brentford edged his side when the Bees beat United 4-0 in Saturday’s late game – the surprising result of the Premier League weekend.
The Dutchman canceled a planned Red Devils holiday in order to unleash his wrath on the team, but according to Dr Rajpal Praar, he has risked doing more harm than good to his players.
Responding to the reports initially on Twitter, Brar said: “If true, I assume the Sports Science and Physics team stepped in. This is how you get players into the red zone and/or injury.”
The red zone is when the athlete reaches 90-100 percent of their maximum heart rate, which means that they are making maximum effort and effort.
Later, Dr. Brar spoke to Sportsmail, and expanded on his thoughts: “In terms of rest/recovery and injury risks – think of your body like a bucket.
“Activity adds water to the bucket while rest and recovery removes it. With the wrong balance between the two, the bucket will overflow (or, on the other end, be completely dry which you don’t want either).

Ten Hag made United run 13.8km – how much they beat Brentford in defeat
In response to the reports, Dr. Rajpal Prarr said Tin Hag risked injuring the players
Dr. Brar said that the penalty for Tin Hag can be inflicted on players in subsequent matches
“Playing a high-profile football match really adds to that bucket and adding another day of running the next day – there’s a reason it was a definite rest day – can lead to this overflow and potential injury risks. Maybe not during the session but in the following matches. The “red zone” is basically a state of extreme fatigue and an increased risk of injury.
Elite footballers’ activity and physical/mental condition are closely monitored by sports and medical science teams for a reason, and training programs, squad decisions, etc. are designed around them.
Ten Hag arrived early at United’s Carrington training base on Sunday to put the United team on the track before leading an investigation into the Brentford result.
The temperature was 30°C in Manchester on Sunday – 86°F.
But Tin Hag has to find quick answers to play his horrific team. United faces fierce rival Liverpool on Monday, August 22 at Old Trafford, and Jurgen Klopp’s team beat United 5-0 last season.
There have been concerns about the level United have been training at in recent weeks and those fears have been exacerbated by Saturday’s assured defeat that put United last in the Premier League standings.
There are also concerns that Cristiano Ronaldo’s stance could have a negative impact.
Although Ronaldo is said to be training well, he exchanged words with second Tin Hag player Steve McClaren at the final whistle after refusing to applaud United fans in Brentford. There is a feeling that his mood negatively affects the dressing room.
However, United rejected suggestions that Ronaldo’s contract could be rescinded, and reiterated that he would remain at the club.
It comes after the season began with a 2-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford and Tin Hag is now the first United manager in more than a century to lose his first two games.
He was visibly angry with his team’s performance on Saturday night.
‘She’s rubbish, and she’s poor. We need higher standards than that, and it shows be into sports.
We have to give up and we didn’t. We must change, that’s pretty clear.
35 minutes You have four goals. It is not possible. The team must take responsibility. I really feel sorry for the fans. let them down.

Ten Hag lost his first two matches as United manager and it won’t get any easier with Liverpool anymore
Club chiefs have so far failed in their attempts to hand their new coach the players he requested during the summer transfer window, as the search for Frenkie de Jong continues.
United legend Rio Ferdinand defended Ten Hag on Saturday night but said United’s pursuit of De Jong was close to begging.
“I don’t feel sorry for the players, I feel sorry for Tin Hag,” Ferdinand said. It comes under false pretenses. He is coming expecting new deals.
“Maybe he was just sitting there thinking ‘A doll has been sold here. I didn’t know I was coming to this.” I know confidence was low.
He knew it but thought ‘I’ll be able to rebuild that’, but the players are clearly not up to par. so easy.’
As for De Jong’s pursuit, Ferdinand said: ‘We’re almost out for this player.
“For three months into the transfer window, with our hats begging, ‘Please come to us, please come to us.'” ”
United is last in the Premier League and is already in crisis after two games
They walked past him, begging him (De Young), “Please turn around and notice us, please turn around and notice us.” He looks around and says, “Not for me.”
‘And we are still there; “Please give us one chance.” How do we put ourselves in this situation? How do we allow ourselves to be in a situation like this?
Do you think Klopp, Pep, Sir Alex or Jose would follow a player like this? They won’t!
