Saturday's third round tie takes the young defender and his Reds legend boss Jaap Stam back to Old Trafford
Peter Schmeichel says Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal could rue his failure to sign a commanding centre-back and feels his former club need a defensive leader. Speaking after the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford, the Dane - who captained United in their 1999 Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich - said he was concerned about the lack of authoritative players in front of goalkeeper David De Gea. Schmeichel won five league titles with United, beginning when Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister were the regular centre-back duo and ending with Jaap Stam partnered by either Ronny Johnsen or Henning Berg. He said he does not see similarly dominant defenders in Van Gaal's squad, with the Dutch manager having already used Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Paddy McNair, Tom Thorpe, Tyler Blackett and Michael Keane as centre-backs. Schmeichel praised De Gea, one of his successors in goal, for his performance on Sunday, but told the BBC's Match of the Day : "Whoever is in Van Gaa ...

[Picture] Jaap Stam and Edwin Van Der Sar both returned to Old Trafford tonight for Soccer Aid match!
A Clarence Seedorf hat-trick inspired Jose Mourinho’s Rest of the World team to a 4-2 win over England at Old Trafford in Soccer Aid 2014. The Dutch midfielder was impressive throughout the bi-annual charity game and opened the scoring with a blinding effort into the roof of the net just after half-time. Nicky Byrne made it 2-0 with another excellent finish, before England came back to level proceedings. Seedorf then curled home a deflected effort four minutes from time before completing his treble in added-on time to seal a 4-2 victory. The game raised £4.2million for UNICEF. United legends Edwin Van Der Sar and Jaap Stam started for the Rest of the World, but Treble winner Teddy Sheringham sadly had to pull out for England through injury. There was a smattering of United fans on the Old Trafford pitch, too, with former Westlife star Byrne, comedian Patrick Kielty and X Factor’s Olly Murs all involved. The latter looked lively from the start and brought the first save of the game after just four min ...
Manchester United legend Jaap Stam hopes Jose Mourinho can help inspire the Rest of the World to Soccer Aid victory on Sunday at Old Trafford.
Jaap Stam could be returning to Old Trafford as part of Louis Van Gaal back room team. Would be very happy if this is true!
Arsenal had just won the Premier League and the FA Cup. Ferguson wanted to know what Arsenal's secret was, so he went down to Highbury to pay them a visit. Once at the Arsenal ground, he asked Arsene Wenger what his secret was. "Simple," said Arsene, "ah keep mah playerz sharp by testing not only zeir bodeez, but also their minds. Regard!" Arsene calls out to Denis Bergkamp, "Denis! 'Ee is your father's son, but 'ee is not your brother. 'Oo is 'ee?" Denis Bergkamp calls back, "oh, that is simple. He is me!" Ferguson is very impressed, and travels back to Old Trafford. Once back home, he calls out to David Beckham: "David! Come here, I have a riddle for you!" "What's that boss?" "He is your father's son, but he is not your brother. Who is he?" David Beckham thinks hard for a minute, and then asks if he can take the problem home and think about it overnight. At home, David phones up his teammate Jaap Stam and tells him the riddle. "Oh that's easy," says Jaap Stam, "that is me!" The next day David Beckham fi ...
Keane hits out at Fergie 10 December By Matt Barlow Roy Keane has reignited his war of words with Sir Alex Ferguson with a withering series of remarks about the Former Manchester United boss. Keane opens up on his bitter exit from Old Trafford and the breakdown of his relationship with Ferguson in an ITV documentary to be screened tonight. He talks of Fergie’s methods of ‘power and control’ and his ‘massive ego’, hails Brian Clough as ‘without a doubt’ the best manager he worked for and omits Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville when choosing the finest United team from his former team-mates. Keane brands Neville ‘the weakest link’ and, in reference to Giggs, says: ‘Having a great career doesn’t mean you’re a great player.’ Included in his team instead of Fergie’s favourites are rebels who fell out with the former United manager, including Jaap Stam, Paul Ince, David Beckham and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. ‘You don’t win league titles by having choirboys in your dressing room ...
The Rundown: Manchester United v Arsenal: 10 famous matches Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday for the latest instalment in one of English football's fiercest rivalries. Here we pick out 10 of the best meetings between the two clubs over the past 25 years. 1- Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal (a.e.t): April 14, 1999, Villa Park (FA Cup semi-final replay) Ryan Giggs's wonder goal can be forgiven for stealing the headlines in what was an exceptional match. United took a first-half lead with a classy long-range strike from David Beckham in a game that ebbed and flowed, until the Gunners equalised midway through the second half with a Denis Bergkamp shot that deflected off Jaap Stam and squirmed under the body of Peter Schmeichel. It took on a whole new dimension when Roy Keane was sent off for a second yellow card and, with the introduction of Marc Overmars, Arsenal were all over United. Nicolas Anelka had a goal disallowed for offside and United's dream of an unprecedented trophy haul seem ...
Sir Alex: Ronaldo's my best-ever United star! SIR Alex Ferguson managed some great stars in his 27 years at Old Trafford. But who was the greatest United player he managed? Bryan Robson? Ryan Giggs? Eric Cantona? Roy Keane or David Beckham? None of the above. One man, he says, stands apart...Cristiano Ronaldo. HARRY HARRIS has the revelation from Sir Alex's new autobiogrpahy... Sir Alex Ferguson clearly believes Cristiano Ronaldo was the best player under his guidance at Old Trafford. During his 27 years in charge at Old Trafford, Sir Alex won 38 trophies and managed some of the biggest names in football, like David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Peter Schmeichel, Bryan Robson, Roy Keane, Jaap Stam and Ruud Van Nistelrooy. But his affection for Ronaldo shines through the pages of his latest autobriography, published Tuesday, with such a media fanfare. Sir Alex allowed Ronaldo to leave Old Trafford, but only after Real Madrid had agreed to pay £80m for the winger. "Cristiano was the most gifted player I managed," ...

Jaap Stam is the best United defender I've witnessed at Old Trafford. Better than Vidic or Ferdinand.
WHAT Alex Ferguson DID WRONG AT Manchester United It's probably inconceivable, albeit preposterous to chronicle the misdeeds of the colossus, SAF, who ruled the institution called Manchester United for twenty six year with iron fist. His reign at Old Trafford was as eventful as it was successful; testament by trophy laden cabinets. His retirement was not unforseen totally, and it only strengthened the maxim that every great tale plots its exit strategy. History has judged the ex gaffer fairly, as attested by the myriad of accolades that poured from present and former greats of the game when news of his bowing out hit the airwaves. However, it would be worth taking a more critical look at some of his decisions as United's manager. Following the treble in 1999, he fell out with defensive stalwart and Dutch ace, Jaap Stam. This led to his transfer to SS Lazio, heralding the beginning of United's woeful performance in central defense. Stam led the backline with unrivaled dominance and enviable authorit ...
Sir Alex Ferguson watched on from the stands - and took part in a Mexican wave - as Old Trafford hosted a Legends match for charity against Real Madrid. A number of star names from the two clubs' illustrious past turned out for what was a highly enjoyable game at a sun-drenched Old Trafford for the Manchester United's Red Heart United charity.

Trio share Treble memories Bayern Munich's triumph in the 2013 Champions League final has brought back memories of the 1999 equivalent fixture for a trio of ex-Manchester United aces. Ronny Johnsen, Teddy Sheringham and Jaap Stam all helped the Reds to beat Bayern 14 years ago today (Sunday) to complete an unprecedented haul of trophies. It's a feat which some, Sir Alex Ferguson included, believe will never be repeated. The trio are all set to play together again next Sunday, 2 June, against a Real Madrid Legends XI at Old Trafford. Tickets are still available for the Red Heart United charity game. "Every year, people start talking about it in January," said Sheringham, who scored United's equaliser in the Camp Nou final and then provided the assist for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's winner. "Once a team gets through the third round of the FA Cup, everyone starts talking about it but they should be saying, 'Whoah, there's a long way to go yet'. "We had a little bit of the rub of the green at the right time and we ...
Invariably when a player exhausts the patience of Sir Alex, his days at Old Trafford are soon cut short. Just ask Jaap Stam, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistelrooy or David Beckham. Rooney be careful with sir Alex Ferguson.
10 REASONS WHY Manchester United ARE THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL 1. The Red Devils. This isn't a nickname given by owners or directors, this is an actual name handed down by Beelzebub himself to his agents of evil. It speaks volumes about the pure arrogance of the club that they flaunt their ties to Satan with such crassness. 2. Manchester United live near Old Trafford. If you rearrange this statement you get the sentence Manchester United n Old Trafford are evil. Okay so the statement may not be true because United's ground is in Old Trafford not near it, but the facts are there for all to see. 3. Name United's three best defenders of the Premier League era. Gary Pallister? Jaap Stam? Wes Brown? What number did they all wear? Six! 666=the sign of the devil. Need I say more. 4. Since 1993, when United's dominance began, teenage pregnancies, poverty, and crime have all increased. Not to mention there's been a global economic downturn, untold disasters and Loose Women on the television. A coincidence? I think not ...
Which ex-United player do you want back at Old Trafford & why ? Pique? Diego Forlan? Berbatov? Ronaldo? Tevez? Ji sung Park? Or anyone else...? Have your say guys! -Jay
Alex Ferguson has always insisted that referees should be respected. The Manchester United boss angrily confronted official Mike Dean at Old Trafford on Boxing Day. But on March 22, 2008, Fergie said it was “absolutely ridiculous” for managers and players to abuse refs. He said: “We are talking about respect for referees at grassroots level and I think that is absolutely correct. “The haranguing of referees is absolutely ridiculous — we know that. It’s not right. “We see it as an issue. Since the situation with Andy D’Urso (when the ref was blasted by Roy Keane, Jaap Stam, Nicky Butt, David Beckham and Gary Neville in 2000), we’ve not done anything like that.” FOOTBALL fans around the country were up in arms last night as Alex Ferguson escaped an FA rap for haranguing referee Mike Dean. Fergie steamed into Dean, his linesman AND the fourth official before the start of the second half for his decision to allow a JonnyEvans own goal during Manchester United’s 4-3 win over Newcastle. Th ...
Arsenal fans need to learn from Man Utd supporters! Schemical and Ronaldo both moved on from Man Utd on there own requests, while the likes of Jaap Stam, David Beckham and Rvn fell out with Sir Alex, and were sold. My point is, Ronaldo and Schemical both left [on there on requests] while on top of their games, we accepted that Schemical wanted a new challenge, while CR7 wanted to fulfill his dream to play for Real. But, both players are welcomed back to Old Trafford like hero's! While Stam, Beckham and Rvn all left after falling out with Sir Alex, but we the fans still welcome them to the red half of Manchester with open arms. Not like Arsenal fans, who have turned against Nasri, Clichy and RVP after they left for City's millions and United's proud heritage and history! Two out of three wanted a big wage pack while the other at 29, wanted silverware and honours but Mr Wenger and his board showed they were interested just in profits!
Although I fully support Rio Ferdinand's stance for not wearing the "kick it out" shirt because of the pathetic punishment given to John Terry for his racist remarks, I can't help but think, having incurred Fergie's wrath, that his days at Old Trafford will soon be over. You only have to look at Jaap Stam, David Beckham, Roy Keane, Ruud Van Nistlerooy and Carlos Tevez as proof of that.
