Manchester United great wants EPL coaching return

Former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam has confirmed that he would love to manage in the Premier League one day.

Speaking to Radio East, as per Goal, the centre-back confirmed that his ideal future coaching role would be in England.

“If I could choose,” the former Netherlands international began, “my preference would be England.

“I would prefer to work abroad,” he continued, “and to work in the Premier League would of course be fantastic.”

Kampen-born Stam is currently the assistant coach at Jong Ajax, the Dutch giants’ youth team, having ended his career with the Amsterdam heavyweights.

While he enjoyed a peripatetic career, featuring in Italy with AC Milan and Lazio, and with the likes of SC Cambuur, Willem II and PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie, his finest hour arguably came with Manchester United, a club which clearly holds a beloved spot in the defender’s heart.
