Ten Hag, 52, is amongst a handful of names linked to the highest job at United, with interim supervisor Ralf Rangnick’s tenure set to finish after the present season.
“Erik ten Hag is a great coach and that is always good for Manchester United,” Van Gaal informed reporters forward of Netherlands’ pleasant at residence to Germany on Tuesday.
“But Manchester United are a commercial club, so it’s a difficult choice for a coach … he would be better going 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.”
The 52-year-old Ten Hag was appointed by Ajax through the 2017-18 marketing campaign and led them to the Dutch league title in 2019 and 2021, in addition to the Champions League semi-finals in 2019.
