Louis van Gaal warns Erik ten Hag against joining Manchester United

Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has urged Erik ten Hag to snub a move to Old Trafford.

Man United are expected to announce their new permanent manager at the end of the season, following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.

The likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are top targets to become their next boss.

Daily Mail report this week that Luis Enrique is also a serious contender for the managerial job.

However, the Ajax boss is touted as the leading candidate for the job but Louis van Gaal warns the Dutchman against moving to his old club as he described The Red Devils as a ‘commercial’ club.

Though Manchester United are one of the top spenders in Europe in the last decade, they have failed to win either the Premier League or Champions League.

Many suggest United have rather focused on signing players for only commercial benefits, which has also affected the club’s ambition on winning trophies.

Louis van Gaal said: “Erik ten Hag should join a football club, not a commercial club.

Manchester United is a commercial club.”
