Former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam has hailed Erik ten Hag as a talented coach.

Ten Hag is seen as one of the leading candidates for the Manchester United job, as United will aim to sign a new permanent manager at the end of the season.

Stam has hailed the work Ten Hag has done at Ajax with a young team and with limited financial resources, but has also warned that the Manchester United job will be a whole new package from what he’s used to in the Netherlands.

“Ten Hag is doing very well at Ajax; he makes the team a difficult opponent for everyone in Europe and Holland,” Stam told Sky Sports Italy, via Tuttomercatoweb.

“He is very good at showing the players what to do and also at improving individual players. At Ajax, he obviously has the finances to grow the team with young players.

“For him, Man United would be another thing compared to what he is experiencing in Holland. He has to take this step forward in his career.”
