EPL: He likes to gamble – Jaap Stam on Man Utd defender

Former Manchester United man, Jaap Stam has given his verdict on defender Tyrell Malacia, insisting that the 23-year-old likes to gamble at times.

Malacia arrived at Old Trafford from Dutch club Feyenoord Rotterdam last summer.

While Malacia has Luke Shaw ahead of him as the first-choice left-back under manager Erik ten Hag, Shaw was used as a central defender at times last season, opening a window of opportunity for Malacia to get more chances.

But Stam believes Malacia is a good man to have as a left-back behind Shaw.

“Well, you know, it is not easy for him because he has Shaw in front of him,” Stam said (via Man United’s website).

“He likes to gamble, at times, as well, and sometimes you need to be aggressive.

“I think he is a good man to have as a left-back behind Shaw. You know, when Shaw is not able to play or when Ten Hag is using him in a different position, he can step in and do that job without being a doubt for the manager to think about if he is producing or not.”
