Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has warned United target Erik ten Hag not to join the club as it is more of a commercial club than a footballing one. Van Gaal spent two seasons at the club and feels that ten Haag has a difficult choice on his hand. The club wants to appoint a manager on a permanent basis before the end of the season and is understood to have had discussions last week. Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino, Spain boss Luis Enrique, and Sevilla head coach Julen Lopetegui have also been linked with the vacant post.

“Of course, we are playing in a new system, different things are required of the players. But I think we showed a lot of good things,” Louis van Gaal said talking about Erik ten Hag and his decision to join Manchester United. “Do I like the system? Well, I’m still in favor of 4-3-3 but I’m not the national coach and the national coach has a very strong opinion about it. I know he has that preference, he always said this publicly. We already had this debate when I came here. The manager decides the tactics.”
