Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has urged Ajax coach Erik ten Hag to resist a move to Old Trafford.
The 52-year-old was interviewed for the role last week and is currently seen as the prime candidate for the position.
Holland coach Van Gaal said, “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.”
Van Gaal infamously was sacked by United 48 hours after winning the FA Cup final in 2011.
