Ghana's No. 1

Manchester United fans all say same thing about Jaap Stam after Liverpool FC Legends clash

Published on: 24 September 2022

Manchester United fans have all agreed on one thing after watching Jaap Stam play during the 'Legends of the North' game against Liverpool.

United lost the first leg of this charity fixture 3-1 at Old Trafford back in May, with all proceeds raised from the match going to the Manchester United Foundation.

The last encounter raised more than £1.3million for the foundation, as Bryan Robson, Dimitar Berbatov and Antonio Valencia were among famous former Reds who took part in the game. Roy Keane agreed to make a surprise appearance at Saturday's match, after initially not having been expected to play.

Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher were also among the United squad for the second fixture. Berbatov, who scored the Reds' only goal last time out, also returned alongside Valencia.

Liverpool were led by Kenny Dalglish, with Ian Rush and John Aldridge also helping out in a coaching capacity. Xabi Alonso, Glen Johnson and Robbie Keane were among some of the standout names for Liverpool.

Stam, who also took part in the clash back in May, was named once again in United's squad. The 50-year-old rolled back the years during a dominant first-half display, as he showed everyone he certainly hadn't lost his touch.

The Dutch centre-back had a short but successful stay at Old Trafford. The 'no-nonsense' defender won three Premier League titles in three years, alongside an FA Cup and a Champions League.

Fans watching the match against Liverpool were all stunned by the level of performance from the former Red, as they took to social media to share their thoughts on a commanding display.
