Erik ten Hag should rule out a move to Manchester United, according to former manager Louis van Gaal, because the Red Devils are “a commercial club.”
“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.
“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.”
