Jaap Stam Exclusive: United Need More Recruits

Former Manchester United star Jaap Stam feels his old side still require several more signings this summer. The Red Devils have already acquired Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen during the current transfer window, but the 50-year-old is not convinced that United can stop there. Erik ten Hag has been tasked with restoring the club to its former glory, after a disappointing season that saw them miss out on Champions League football – and Stam feels his countryman needs further reinforcements.


United Need More Recruits

Speaking exclusively to Genting, he said: “If you look at the recruitment so far, Ten Hag has signed players from Holland that will not be used to the intensity of the Premier League, so there is a risk that they will not be able to come to terms with the league as quickly as they need to. 

“I still think that United need to bring in several more players to raise the quality in the squad. 

“Some people say it's going to take United several seasons before they get back to the level everyone expects the club to be at, but it can happen quickly too. 

“If Erik can bring in the right players, and the players start to understand his way of playing and they can demonstrate their ability, then they can make a difference right away and United could have a very successful season. 

“Nobody knows how long it will take for United to compete for the biggest prizes, but the only way that he will be successful at United is to convince all of his players about his tactical style and the way he wants to play – and by bringing the right players in. 

“He needs players with certain qualities to help him play the way he wants to play football, and we all know that it isn’t easy for United to sign the players they want – because when United come knocking, prices go up. 

“Clubs are also reluctant to sell these players because it is very difficult to replace them – the type of players that he wants to sign are the best in their position, so they will cost huge sums of money, which brings its own pressure.”
