Jaap Stam has reportedly returned to Manchester United, working as a scout for the club. He was spotted in Porto Alegre, Brazil, this week, taking a look at some youngsters United are interested in. He was watching a youth-team match between Internacional and Ceramica, but wasn’t overly impressed with the target, Walter.
“I liked the game,” said Stam. “Walter played well, but he made some errors. He made some interesting attacks, but also missed shots. It is natural because they are all very young.”
