New Manchester Utd boss David Moyes told the footballers that they have to work for him seven days a week.
For the first time since taking the job last month he send out United blueprint, and he will insist on a fierce work ethic as Manchester Utd defend their Premier League title next term.
Scot Moyes said: “You have to earn your stars when dealing with players. It’s up to you to show what you’ve got.
“If you want to work for me you need to be able to work seven days a week. I need to know my staff will give me that effort.
“Discipline has to come from within for players. And I’m a great believer in giving young players opportunities.
“Developing players mentally is very important, but it needs to fit with what the players want.
“You have to keep your eye on what the industry is doing — what’s new. And your recruiting as a manager can determine whether you keep your job.
“Everton needed a new direction when I came in and, as a coach, you have to find ways you can keep developing.”
Moyes said that that’s the ONLY way to work at a top-level football club.
“It’s a great honour to be appointed at Manchester United.
“But don’t assume your boards of directors always have the answers. You need to influence.”
