Ten Hag has surrounded himself with experienced figures on the bench including Steve McClaren and Benni McCarthy.

And former centre-back Stam is now ready to join the team as defensive coach.

The 67-cap Netherlands international, 50, is currently without a club after being sacked as FC Cincinnati coach a year ago.

Stam has spent a lot of time in the dugout with other sides like Reading and Feyenoord.

And after being linked with United over the summer, Stam admits he’s ready to join should Ten Hag feel the need to ask him.

Stam told Tribal Football: “I never spoke to United – nobody called me for any reason.

“But that’s how it is in football. When a new trainer arrives, he invites his people that he knows and trusts who can help him in certain ways.

“But like I said, United are the club I love. I grew there as a person and as a player, they made me stronger, they made me who I am now.

“I made history with this club and if they need me, if I can help them in any way, I’m always there for them.”

Stam made 127 appearances for United between 1998 and 2001, winning the Treble in 1999 and two other titles.

He also played for PSV, Lazio, AC Milan and Ajax before retiring in 2007.

Stam has worked at United ever since, joining as a scout in 2008 to oversee South American players.

But a year later he left the company to become deputy boss at PEC Zwolle before his career as a manager took off.
