ERIK TEN HAG is undergoing a huge internal review of Manchester United as his plans to overhaul the club begin.
The Dutchman has already started work early despite only officially leaving Ajax last week.
SunSport understands the different support departments at the Carrington training complex have been told of his plans.
Ten Hag wants to spend time with each of them to see how they work and meet the staff on a personal level.
This includes everyone from the technical analysis team to the nutritionists and conditioners.
Even the kitchen staff have been warned he wants to look at weekly menus and choose what will stay or go.
Ten Hag will speak to the groundsmen about daily training set-ups for drills ahead of pre-season.
The 52-year-old is a stickler for detail, even down to the length of the grass on different pitches.
A source said: “He’s bringing his own style. It feels like an army leader getting his troops in order.”

The ex-FC Utrecht boss took an official tour of the Aon Training Complex earlier this week and had his first press conference on Monday afternoon.
And he has already warned his players of his brutal work ethic and preparation plans ahead of the new campaign.
Ten Hag told the club website: “A manager is 24/7.
“You live for football and you want to prepare for a season and if you need to prepare a team from game to game.
“We have to play a game every three days so it’s a lot about football.
“You sleep and you live football.”
