Man Utd set to ditch luxury Lowry hotel as Erik ten Hag makes huge change at Old Trafford that Jose Mourinho was denied | The Sun
ERIK TEN HAG has had the infrastructure of the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand at Old Trafford redone to suit his needs for a new players’ lounge.
Both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho wanted the dedicated facility so players could arrive at the ground early and have their meals and team meeting there rather than get together at the city centre Lowry Hotel the night before.
But that meant the club having to give up prime match day hospitality space for sponsors and guests.
They were denied the request but it shows the power and control of Ten Hag at Old Trafford now that he gets his way.
Now one of the suites in the stand has been converted into a facility for the players.
The club have had to completely revamp other match day hospitality rooms to accommodate Ten Hag’s requirements and move sponsors and guests around.

The club’s directors’ lounge has even come under reconstruction although it is unclear if that is a direct result or was planned.
Some of the cost will be recouped from the fact that they won’t have a bill to pay at The Lowry for their pre-match preparation for every home game.
Another positive is the security factor if there is another full on protest against The Glazers stopping the team bus getting to the ground.
The players will be going straight to Old Trafford by themselves much earlier than usual.
