Erik ten Hag refused any questions from Sky Sports journalist Gary Cotterill.
In his pre-match press conference for the Premier League clash against Southampton, the United officials blocked Cotterill from asking questions.
He was later ignored by Ten Hag outside at Carrington.
Erik ten Hag showing every other manager in the PL this is how you deal with reporters who arent interested in actual reporting. Just ignore them.

United are said to be vexed at Cotterill’s tweet put out after their 4-0 loss at the hands of Brentford.
The tweed read, “#karma,” and was followed by a smiling emoji.

The veteran reported stated:
“I’m surprised. It was just two people doing their job but I’m assuming he was offended by it.”
“The thing at Palace was him doing his job and not commenting and me doing my job and trying to get a comment.”
“I’m only guessing that was the reason. I haven’t been told. You saw what was said but I don’t think it would be too much of a leap to assume it was about that.”
Cotterill was ignored by Ten Hag at Selhurst Park after United’s last game of the season.
The Dutchman was asked whether he is excited to be taking the United job, after which he was pushed away by security.
The reporter was displeased with the entire situation and said: “It doesn’t look good being manhandled by security, Erik. It’s Man United. It’s a big club.”
