Injury prone Phil Jones has been kicked out of Manchester United’s training ground dressing room – to make space for Erik ten Hag’s new signings.

The first team changing room at United’s AON training Centre at Carrington is only meant for a maximum 24 players and is bursting to capacity after Ten Hag’s summer spending spree.

And that’s left stars like Jones and third choice left back Brandon Williams, on loan at Norwich last season, being shunted down the corridor to the Under-23 changing room.

Joining them are believed to be defenders Teden Mengi and Alex Tuanzebe as well as promising midfielder Shola Shoretire.

Erik ten Hag has warned Cristiano Ronaldo to get used to life on the bench.

Ten Hag said: “As we all know, he didn’t have a pre-season and you cannot miss pre-season, it’s the base for everything, especially the way we play.

“We play another type of football compared to last year.

“The demands, the co-operation, the positioning, in and out of possession, and the fitness all depend on pre-season.

“I will be his friend and sometimes I will be his teacher, it depends on the situation.”

Juventus CEO Maurizio Arrivabene has admitted he feels sad for Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation at Man Utd.

“We said goodbye to Cristiano with great reciprocal respect a year ago, so what happened at Manchester United is no longer our problem,” he told DAZN.

“It’s sad to see him in this situation that is not pleasant for him or for his team, but again, that is no longer our business.”

Man Utd’s football director John Murtough reportedly pleaded with Erik ten Hag to KEEP out-of-favour defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to a new report.

The Athletic claim the Dutch tactician wanted to sell the right-back before the transfer window closed.

However, Murtough is reported to have stepped in and asked ten Hag to keep the player.
