Jaap Stam Exclusive: Malacia Will Give Everything For United

Jaap Stam has claimed that Tyrell Malacia “will give everything” for Manchester United, ahead of his debut season as a Red Devil. Malacia was new manager Erik ten Hag’s first signing of the summer transfer window, arriving from Feyenoord for £14.7million to challenge Luke Shaw at left-back. Stam coached the full-back during his short stint as Feyenoord boss in 2019 – and has hailed the 22-year-old’s qualities, both on and off the pitch.


Committed And Confident

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “The good thing about Malacia is that he's very confident about his ability. 

“He's honest, hard working. He will give everything for United and will absolutely want to make the most of this opportunity. 

“As a person, he is a good character too and he will get along with everyone in the squad. 

“He’s a clever operator. He plays on the front foot and is aggressive in his challenges. 

“He is very confident on the ball and the United fans can expect to see him bombing down the pitch, making overlaps, delivering quality crosses into the box and also scoring goals. He has that in his locker. Defensively, he is very good one against one.”

Opportunities Will Come

Stam is also convinced that Malacia will get plenty of chances under Ten Hag – and insists the Rotterdam native will be able to make a difference, regardless of whether he starts or comes off the bench.

“I think he [Malacia] will make a difference to the team and he will add quality to the left-back [area] and give Luke Shaw some healthy competition,” he continued.

“He is a young player, he still needs to refine parts of his game, but he will only improve and I think he is ready to make a difference straight away – that is what I am hoping for. 

“I think he [will] get his opportunities at United this season and, tactically, I think he is a good option from the bench to add pace to games, especially with the five sub rule that is coming into effect this season.”
