Manchester United: Erik ten Hag needs ‘football club, not commercial club’ – Louis van Gaal

Former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has suggested Erik ten Hag should rule out a move to the Red Devils because they are “a commercial club”.

United have spoken to Ajax coach Ten Hag about their vacant manager’s job.

Interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be in charge until the summer.

“I’m not going to advise [Erik], he’ll call me himself. But he must choose a football club and not a commercial club,” said Netherlands boss Van Gaal.

Ten Hag, 52, has a contract with the reigning Dutch champions until 2023.

However, that is unlikely to prove an obstacle should United decide the Dutchman – who led Ajax to league titles in 2019 and 2021, plus the 2019 Champions League semi-finals – is the right man to replace Rangnick.

Paris St-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is also on a shortlist, with Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui and Spain coach Luis Enrique also in the frame.

But Van Gaal, who won the FA Cup during his spell in charge at Old Trafford between 2014 and 2016, suggested Ten Hag should consider his options carefully.

“Erik ten Hag is a great coach and that is always good for Manchester United,” added Van Gaal, who was speaking before the Netherlands’ friendly against Germany.

“But Manchester United are a commercial club, so it’s a difficult choice for a coach. He’d better go to a football club.”

Louis van Gaal has told compatriot Erik ten Hag to reject interest from Manchester United as they are a “commercial club” rather than a “football club”.

Ajax manager Ten Hag was interviewed by United officials over the club’s managerial vacancy last week but they are yet to make a decision over who will replace interim boss Ralf Rangnick in the summer.

Ten Hag is a leading contender to take up the role at Old Trafford with Mauricio Pochettino, Luis Enrique and Julen Lopetegui also on the club’s shortlist.

However, Van Gaal has told his fellow countryman not to follow in his footsteps by managing Manchester United.

Van Gaal said on Monday: “Erik ten Hag is a great coach, and that is always good for Manchester United. But Manchester United are a commercial club, so it’s a difficult choice for a coach. He’d better go to a football club.

“I’m not going to advise him, he’ll call me himself. But he must choose a football club and not a commercial club.”

Netherlands boss Van Gaal, 70, managed Manchester United during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 campaigns.

He won the FA Cup in his last game in charge but was sacked as Manchester United failed to finish inside the top four during his second season at the club.

Ten Hag’s Ajax are two points clear of second-placed PSV with seven games left to play. The 52-year-old’s deal at the Johan Cruyff Arena is due to expire in June 2023.
